Cough - Premier Pediatric Urgent Care Provider in Texas - Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care

A cough is a common symptom of illness, usually caused by a viral infection. Most children can catch a viral infection that causes a cough several times a year, and it is typically not serious. Although coughs often sound bad, keep in mind that coughing is a good reflex that clears out the airways in the lungs and protects your child from getting pneumonia.

At Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care, we are happy to evaluate your child’s cough.
