Q.

asthma - Brenden

As soon as my son lays his head down to sleep at night he starts coughing allot (dry cough). Also when he gets excited he grabs hold of his clothes. Could this be a sign of asthma ?

This does not sound like asthma but more like a problem with a post nasal drip.Please ask your doctor to see your child.
