My "d step d" has had a bad cough (sometimes rattly) for over 3 weeks now. One doc told her she didn't have an infection but was most probably an allergy. She did react positively to the antihistamine cough syrup so I suppose that is it. Awaiting blood tests has anyone ever experienced this and have any idea what she could be allergic to and what natural treatments might help?

My kids have asthma and allergies and cough instead of wheeze. ETS and air pollution are the worst for them.

My Aunt had a cough like that for months, until she eliminated coffee. I think it can be an allergy to just about anything. My son is going through the same thing now -- and I'm not sure what to do about it.
