    Problems with colds while in brace?

    My daughter Caitlin has been in a Boston brace 23/7 since December. Last month she caugh a nasty cold and she's now got a lingering cough that she just can't seem to shake. The cold went round the school, but most kids were over with it in a couple of weeks. Her GP says her lungs sound fine -- no infection, but the stupid cough won't quit.

    We were wondering if this is a common pattern when people are in the brace, as though the brace somehow makes it harder to get rid of chest colds? Perhaps by interfering with breathing or something. Has anyone heard about this, or experienced the same problem themselves?

    Thanks - Patricia
