Our expert says:
Both asthma and post nasal drip can cause nightly coughing. These two are often seen in combination as well, this makes treatment difficult. A sinus rinse is not the primary treatment option but the last resort if nothing else has worked. The problem with a rinse is that is frequently gives only temporary relief, but might help to give the other medications a kickstart. It seems as though your child does suffer from asthma and rinosinusitis. If her nose is treated the asthma will also control better. Therefor I would recommend combination of asthma sprays, nasal corticosteroid sprays(like Nasacor) and possible singulair. If the nasal discharge is pussy antibiotics is indicated. When all else fail, a rinse is the last alternative.
