My 11 year old daughter has been coughing a lot lately..a dry cough. I think she had a very minor cold about a week ago which started the cough. Right now, no real cold symptoms. But, a long time ago, she was tested positive for severe dust allergy. But, she normally does not have any allergy symptoms, no wheezing, sneezing, breathing issues at all. The allergy doc said that allergy shots would be a good option. Can dust allergy cause dry cough? Also, is it possible to really dust proof her room when there is carpet in it? Cannot remove carpet since we live in an apartment..

I am severely allergic to dust (as well as just about every other pollen in the environment) and there really is no way to "de-dust" your home, especially being in an apartment. There are certain bed sheets and sorts you can buy but really the allergy shots may be a good option for her... this way, too, she wont suffer any more from the annoyance and illness of having allergies.

I learned the hard way, that dry cough can move right on into asthma. If the allergy shots stand a chance of getting rid of it, I'd say go for it.
