Wet cough only at night

My daughter is 8 months old. She has this wet cough but only at night after she has been asleep for a wile. We are giving her some cough medicine but does not seem to help. This has been going on for a couple of weeks. What can we do?

Martines, it is difficult to make a diagnosis over the Net especially in a person so young. It might be due to a viral infection (look for fever) or an allergy. You can try physiotherapy and/or nebulising her with something like Combivent®, but if that doesn’t work the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
