Hi, My now 4 yr old son has had issues with coughing since he was about 1. He would cough constantly all night long, for months. I took him to the dr's many many times, which didn't help. I then took him to National Jewish (respiratory specialist) and they tested him for allergies and asthma which came back fine. He stopped coughing for about a year, then just last month it picked up again. It sounds like a very mucusy cough and gets much worse at night than during the day. There are no other syptoms associated with the cough. Any suggestions would help. Poor guy isn't getting any sleep!
