Hi My 4 year old had walking pneumonia recently. he has recovered however he is still coughing. The doctor prescribed xopenex and pulmicort. when he cough it seems like a wet cough and he had mucus in his throat.
I wanted to know how I can help him flush the mucus. Do I continue to give him xopenex please help.
Hello... I also had walking pneumonia at Christmas and I'm still having problems... still coughing although not as much ... it is a wet cough and is worse when I eat, sometimes cough up clear liquid... still short of breath and have chest pains. I think I'll make an appointment to see my dr... it's difficult for you with a young child as he can't really explain all his symptoms. I think you should take him back to the dr or at least phone and ask their advice.
