    My little man has been suffering with tickly cough attacks but mainly at night. These are affecting his sleep and mine. We both end up grumpy guts' the day after. How can I prevent/ help him to knock it on the head? Other than the cough he's been fine all Barr one night when his temp rocketed but that was just once. I have been putting karvol rub on his chest and giving calpol. But I'm at a loss now. I'm tempted to take him to the docs but can't see what they can advise other than what I'm already doing. Any suggestions are appreciated :) xx

    How long has it been going on for? I would take him to the doctor if I were you, the doctor will have a listen to his chest and determine if it's something antibiotics might help for or even if it's asthma or so on. Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, if he's otherwise well but having episodes of coughing at night, it does sound like asthma could be one option for the cause. If it's asthma you are are going to want to get a doctor involved.
