My little boy is now 13 months old and has been diagnosed with pneumonia every 3 weeks for the last 7 months. The amount of fluid in his lungs changes with each visit, he has a horrible cough that is worse when he gets up from sleeping. He coughs up a clear to light yellow mucus that has a foul smell, wheezes on and off-more when he is active followed by a spell of coughing up more mucus, has labored breathing, and none to minimal fever. The symptoms seem to be worse upstairs in our house, which is carpeted-downstairs is tile, and is also warmer than downstairs. We have tried every medication the doctors have prescribed- claritin, zyrtec, penicillin, amoxicillin, ampicillin, albuterol inhaler, albuterol mist, robitussin, sudafed, and tylenol 3(with codeine). None of the medications have made a dent in his symptoms, and we are at a loss. Any suggestions?
