My 26 month old has a horrible cough. It has been 4 days now of constant coughing. She hasn't slept more than 2 hours in a row in 4 days and the last 2 night she has basically been up all night. She will doze for awhile and then she's up coughing again. Today she actually fell asleep sitting up on the floor because she is so tired but cannot lay flat or she can't stop coughing. I listened to her chest and don't hear any wheezing but when she goes to cough I can hear a wheezing sound. She had a bad bout of bronchitis when she was 9 months old and was put on an inhaler for a month. The other symptoms she has is a fever and a stuffy/runny nose. Should I take her in? I feel so bad for her, plus I am completely exhausted from being up with her all night for the last 4 nights. Help!
