Actually my daughter is 5 months old and suffering from cough and cold... although I am giving her cough medicine and for cold I am using nassal drop
but I dnt think these are much effective.. it works only for some time but after that she start facing the issues again
Moreover... I in past when I consult with pediatrician... she suggested me for an antibiaotic...
the antibioatic course was finished 3 weeks before... so I am not sure if we can start the antibiaotic again or give nabuliser
although I haven't used the nabuliser yet
May I know if your daughter has wheeze?
No as of now she didn't suggested it....
I think my daughter is not haing such breathing difficulities... but in night specialy... she face a bit difficlut in breathing... and in day time its running nose
Let me brief you.
Cold and cough is a very common condition / symptoms in an infant.
What is important is whether your daughter also gets other symptoms like fever, wheezing, chest indrawing, becoming inactive, having problems with feeding, etc.
Such allergic conditions usually improve with time.
You are requested to watch for these symptoms...
Since you do not find wheezing, nebulizers would not be needed.
I suggest you to keep your child warm and covered. Give her nothing other than breast feeds.
You can get these prescribed from your pediatrician.
Her symptoms will improve with time, you need not be worried.
have you followed?
Do you have any question?
no... i think i got my answer
thanks a lot
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
