Allergy proof her bedroom.........
cover bed and pillow with allergy covers
wash sheets with hot water
remove carpeting, pets, fuzzy toys
buy air cleaner
Wash everything down with bleach for mold killing, but make sure she doesn't breath this in until room is aired out.

also raise the head of her bed 6-8 inches...she could have reflux going on. No food or water for 4 hours before bedtime. Ask doctor to check her for reflux problems.

I was told that smelling the bleach would do more harm than the actual mold would. The dr said to just use soapy water. It really suprised me tho. But glad I found out.

no, do not do bleach. I am asthmatic and trigger to bleach. It could be a few things, in my *puts a eye mask on red so she don't see post* Beep Beep Beep (now I'm an answering machine) it could be

Asthma - Respitory testing needing to confirm with , pulmonolgists (something like that)
Acid Reflux - Try having head and neck elevated (by pillow n such)
Allergies - Allergy proof rooom

Detergents, use something like for "sensitive" skin. Soaps, I personally think Jergen's rock, Personal Hygienge, I prefer Tom's Natural


Air filter in room

Doc can do allergy testing

Dear All
I have done all and I am using the inhaler.. But it seems it is not working.. what I noticed is that when she takes antibiotic she gets better and the sore throat looks clean otherwise, she has sore throat and phlegm... Any suggestions

Must be a stubborn virus or bacteria there.

Perhaps a fungus, bacteria, auto immune disease is hiding. A rheumy can test for auto immune . Primary can check for the rest. Check her toe nails, finger nails for not norm looking nails (thickness, color, shape). Also what is she eating? It could be silent gerd too. I have found with my gerd a banana, tomatoe, any fruit or veggie will cause me to have reflux in evening if I have it past 7pm.

I don't know if this is the same thing, but when I was about 4 I started getting these severe attacks of coughing, inability to breathe, and extreme mucus production. It would often strike at night and my mom would find me wheezing and completely blue. She would actually have to beat on my back to try and get the mucus out. My doctor diagnosed me with differing things (even walking pneumonia) when he finally settled on Asthma. Apparently there is a wet form. However, an inhaler would not work. The only thing that worked and saved my life was Theophylline. I sprinkled it over ice cream and took it every day. This was about 24 years ago, so they might have differing medications. Hope this helps!
