I'm sure the MD wanted the test to avoid her "becoming a carrier," as the nurse put it today. Supposedly it may be possible for her to continue to carry and spread the disease, even though she has...

Broncho spasm, possible asthma

So after a month of coughing, I finally took dd to MD and this was what she thinks. Stopped short of diagnosing asthma, but she gave her a scrip for montelukast and an albuterol inhaler. I haven't...

My 10 yo dd has this problem too. I think if she's eating non-dairy yogurt every day it gets better, but we can't always get that, and we don't eat dairy. I've tried a kids pro-biotic product, but it...

Thanks everyone. Finally took dd1 to MD and she thought it was spasming, ordered a pertussis test but didn't think it was highly likely, esp. since we had similar long bout of coughing last year.

It amazes me that no one thinks these long-term studies ought to be conducted BEFORE they push everyone to get the shot. But they need subjects, and apparently most people don't mind being one.
