Q.

Cough

My 3 yr old has a cough. It normally happens at night or early morning or after he has been crying. It is just one single cough and the a few seconds late another one etc. He does not whheeze. He does have a bit of a runny nose but otherwise he is fine. I have had a look at the list of coughs but can' t seem to find one that best describes his and I don' t have speakers to listen. Should I be concerned?

Paediatrician

Many children of this age cough like this when they are developing asthma. Please ask your paediatrician to see him.
