Q.

Grommits &  PND

Hello,

My little one (9 months) has had grommets insisted in both ears but still coughs profusely at night, to the extent that she chokes. She is currently on a course of Nasonex (one spray in each nostril) morning and night with Sterimar being used during the day. What could be causing her night time coughing and what can I possibly do to counter the coughing.

Please your advise is urgently needed.

Sam

This does not sound like a post nasal drip problem. Your description of her cough suggests that your daughter has whooping cough and not a PND.Please discuss this with your paediatrician.
