Just born has severe cold, noisy breathing. Suggest remedy - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query.
hello doctor.. very good afternoon
my sister delivered a baby boy 20 days back
can you suggest remedy for this
Is he having any indrawing of chest?
Is there fever?
While the baby is breathing, can you see the ribs becoming prominent?
Is the baby trying hard to breath?
he is ok.. only thing is the sound while breathing
Ok. Can you tell me how many times the baby is breathing in and out in a minute?
approx 20 times
That is normal.
Is there any bluish discoloration of the tip of nose or ear lobes?
Nothing like that
Since there is no fever, no increase in the respiratory rate, or no bluish discoloration, there is nothing to worry.
The noise while breathing may be from the nose, which might be blocked.
That will reduce the congestion.
Are you following?
Ok - followed your suggestions
i have a thermometer at home -what should e the normal body temperature for baby?
You can also use Vicks vaporub to apply on the chest, throat and over nose.
Upto 98.6 degree is normal.
Ok fine doctor
May I know the weight of the baby?
he was 4.36 at birth
If mild fever is there, you can give Crocin Drops.
5 drops three times daily orally should be fine.
Hope I have been of help to you.
and also he has some white discharge in eyes and water
If anytime you feel that the baby is not doing good, make sure to visit the pediatrician.
before cold also he was having the same discharge
since form his birth... we are seeing the same
discharge in the sense
I will give you a brief idea about the same.
we will have in the morning when we wake up right
ok please proceed
There is small tube which connects between the eyes and inside of the nose. Normally the tears from the eyes passes to the nose through this channel.
In babies, it is possible that this channel has not become open.
For it to become open, everyday while bathing the baby, you can massage the side of the nose ( The area from near to corner of the eyes downwards).
It is a very frequently seen situation. So no need to worry.
In case, the discharge and watering of eye persists, you will need an ophthalmologist consultation.
They will see if any blockage is there in the channel and then treat accordingly.
Have you followed?
yes doctor... clearly followed and it was really helpful
nothing else to ask you
I am Happy that I could be of help to you.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now
