Hi ladies! I'm popping in from the March 08 Playroom and I had a question.

I run a child care center and I have a little girl that has had this phleghmy cough for about a month. The parents bring a nebulizer in some days for us to do the treatment before lunch. I guess I'm wondering if I should be concerned about this being contagious? The parents have said its just something she can't kick, and there is no fever attached, although she does seem to get pretty tired some days.

Any advice, suggestions would be appreciated!

*New Siggy Coming Soon!*

Jenn, mommy to Emma and Ruby.

They have a nebulizer, so obviously they've already been to the doctor at least once. When's the last time they went? They should probably go back. If it's been going on this long and no one else is sick, it's not contagious. It could be allergies, asthma, or something like that.

My guess if they are doing neb treatments is she gets these often and its that stuff settles in her chest. I would say though a month is excessive and I would want to take my child in to be seen again. Especially if there is no improvement. DS has asthma and coughing is one of the first things I notice when a cold is coming on. It also means we have to start neb treatments and inhaler treatments to get it out of the chest and not have it get worse.
Poor thing I bet she is miserable coughing all the time.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie
