post nasal drip

i saw a child she came with cough without conjunctivitis , runny nose , history of asthma but yet the doctor considered the cough as a post nasal drip cough cuz he said
usually , if its PND the child's cough will b more at night , but if its @ morning suspect more allergic or asthmatic condition

------

and about cough i would lyk to stress on a diagnostic challenge in asthma ... cough variant asthma

a decline of 20 % in lung fxn after methacholine challenge test is helpful in diagnosis of asthma in such pts
*dont forget to give a bronchodilator after the test to reverse effect of methacholine

Are you talking about isolated cough without associated symptoms?

If not, I think its not well oriented guide to approach a cough patient. I imagine my self infront of a cough patient, I can easily differentiate CHF from postviral without using it. another point, using ACEi doesn't confirm the diagnosis of ACEi related cough cuz there are many other common causes. Pneumonia is not from the above list.

Its good to know the many causes of cough. thnx!
