I have 9months old girl and recently she is having coughs and runny nose... She started sneezing and stuffy , runny nose about a month ago and started to cough about a week ago. Started with dry cough but became kind of like wet cough and have weird sound with it . And I took her to the doctor today and she said It’s house dust mite allergy. But I’m not sure about it Is anyone having same problem with you baby?

    Sounds like what I get. It’s called kid cough.

    Yes, our LO started with this at 10 months, eventually pediatrician put him on allergy medicine, sucks but if we don’t stay on top of it, turns into respiratory infection with all the drainage. Worst is at night and when I can hear the mucus rattling in his throat when he breaths. We use the nose Freida to get all we can out and put on baby Vick’s too. It’s a whole ritual! The hard thing is we can’t test or treat him for specific allergies until he gets much older.

    Keep the child elevated. When laying down.

    Is the cough in her throat and sound like a bark or seal? That's croup. My 9 month old just developed it last month. If it's a severe case you can get steroids.

    Hot mist shower -stand in the room with the door closed and hot shower going. Or cool air mist humidifier. Each kid is different so you may have to try a few methods.
