My 5 month old DS has always sounded "mucuousy". The doctors have thought on and off that it was reflux, even though he has no other reflux symptoms, and the reflux meds never seem to help. It seems like he's had a cold/cough for the last 2 months. He was tested for RSV (negative). He had a chest xray Friday and his right lung has spots, which could be normal congestion, bronchitis, or maybe pneumonia. He's on his third round of antibiotics in the last month. I don't think more antibiotics is the answer, and we can't stay on antibiotics forever.
My husband found mold in an area by the furnace, and has cleaned it out. We are thinking of hiring duct cleaners to get the entire home. I hope this helps. I really want to figure out why he's sick all the time. Some people point to daycare, but I don't think it's that. He's been home for the last 11 days and is still sick, and it seems to be worse.
Does anyone have any experience with recurring respiratory illnesses and/or mold in the home?
