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.
Call IMMEDIATELY if:
- Breathing becomes fast or labored (when your child is not coughing).
- Your child starts acting very sick.
Call during office hours if:
- A fever lasts more than 3 days.
- The cough lasts more than 3 weeks.
- You have other concerns or questions.
Croup is a type of cough, related to the barky sound they are making. EDIT
Coughs can last from 2-3 weeks.
Older children can be given cough drops. Do not let there be any cigarette smoke around your child. Make sure they are hydrated.
