Infant has fever and cold. On nasal drops, given crocin. Why is cold still persistent? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
After going to a pediatrician and administred with chrocin drops, Otrinoz Nasal drops, his fever got reduced 2 days back itself.
but his cold seems to be continuing still.
currently we are giving only Nasal drops for cold. We have stopped chrocin drops
Do we need to start any medicine for cough ? If so what ?
He is still very small
For cold we are using Maxstra oral drops (as suggested by doctor)
We can try an anti-allergic medicine
What is the composition of maxstra oral drops?
So currently we are giving him 3 things Maxstra, Otrinoz nasal drops, and zincovit
Let me check about maxstra
So it has anti-allergic component
Clorpheniramine maleate is anti-allergic
Is this sufficient for cough also ?
Yes it will take care of the secretions and the resultant cough
But it can cause sedation
We are giving 0.5ml in morning and 0.5ml in evening
Thus it is recommended that you give cold and cough medicines if symptoms are present and bad enough for iummunity to clear it up
Once the secretions are under control you may discontinue it
Do you mean running nose by the term secretions ?
Runny nose and phlegm, mucus secretions
But will cough will clear automatically once hte cold is in control ?
It should clear up in a day or two
yeah..we have stopped crocin
Unnecessary medication is not advised in cold and cough conditions
Can we stop giving the medicine....and let it recover automatically ?
Will that work ?
Yes you may
We should trust his immunity.
OK...so as long as he is active, we can stop giving him medicines. Right ?
Any other concerns?
ok...will try that from tomorrow.
Hope I helped
Bye for now
