childs coughing
An_244970 posted:
I have an eight yr. old grandaughter that comes to visit me a lot from California, to Florida. When she is coming here from California in the plane she has a coughing problem for two days after she gets here, then it goes away until she has to go back to California, could this be nerves or what? Please let me know what you think. Thank You She has no fear of flying at all!

Hello, welcome.

You are certainly welcome to ask this question on our Parenting Community. Honestly though, the botton line is you need to get her to the doctor when she comes and get this checked out. There is not diagnosing online, no one can guess at this. You need to get her into the docs when she is having symptoms.

Good luck and health!
