So DD (will be 3 in March) had acid reflux bad when she was a baby...she was weaned off it right b4 a year old. We had NO issue of coughing till about
8 months ago when night coughs started (bad gagging coughing). After awhile we went to a ped specialist...where we were put on Flovent and Albuterol via inhauler...first cold again bam she was coughing like CRAZY gagging and all, they added liq steroids for a few days ... So we added Alvesco first sign of a cold on top of Flovent and Alburterol...next cold again bam she was bad...again added liq steroids for a few days through this cold. So we added acid reflux due to her history..I stopped Flovent and Alburterol...she went a good 3 months with out getting a cold and then again cold hit and story repeats itself...so with this cold we added Alburterol via neb and the inhauler was not doing a thing for her
So then we added Singular as of 12/27 and still on AR meds....she just got a cold and again all hell breaks lose
So as of yesterday we added Pulicort via neb
So we are now on Singular/Stopped AR meds/ Alburterol via neb and Pulicort via neb
Im just not thinking this is asthma?!
So last wed i went for a 2nd opinion and she agreed she thought it was asthma and took her off AR meds
Today I went to her sp. dr and he said he thinks it is AR and wants her back on Omeprazole....
Oh and we have an app with an ENT on the 28th
but seems to start becoming more and more during the day. This cough seems to come when sick..and when she is healthy she is 100% healthy no coughing. Well this last episode she only had a 3-4 day break and today she started coughing again (this time i dont see any signs of her being sick/cold). She has no other signs of AR so idk what to think....does anyone have a toddler that goes through the same and has AR?
