I'm taking Duckie into the family doctor on Thursday morning. She's had a dry, tickly cough for a week now. She's been coughing, literally, every 15 seconds. It happens at home, school and church, even in the car. It stops almost immediately when she's outside, it isn't affecting her sleep or eating. No sneezing, no fever. The pollen count has been high so I suspect a post nasal drip. She's regularly been on one half teaspoon of Zyrtec twice a day and Nasonex spray in each nostril nightly. She's been on Delsym since Saturday (one teaspoon twice a day). We've tried gargling, cough drops, upping her water intake, honey. Nothing has helped! She's driving me, husband and her teacher nuts! Ugh!!! I really don't think it's a tick (why would it stop outside?). Does anyone have any ideas?
