she is 2.3 yrs old
we have given her Montair LC kid tablet
yesterday 1 andtoday morning 1
last nightshe cud not sleep well due to nose blockage
tried nasal drops also
not given her bath too...yesterday and today
What is the colour of the mucus secreted?
Is it colourless or yellow in colour?
but mostly colorless only
Does she suffer with recurrent cold?
no fever as yet
Any children in neighbours or in family suffering with cold?
actually she has come from our hometown a month back
and here its was very cold past 2 days
Thanks for the details.
and I too was suffering from cold
few days back
I feel that your daughter might be suffering with viral infection producing cold.
And observe for change in colour of the mucus
May I know her weight?
we haven't checked recently but must be 12-13
then 5 ml should do.
you can give her steam inhalation
shud we give anything else for fever
sinarest will help in cold and fever
should we stop the tablet
If the colour of the mucus changes from colourless to yellow that means there is secondary bacterial infection
for this she might need antibiotics.
continue with the nasal drops and stop the tablet.
sinarest syp should be enough
Avoid cold and refrigerated food items
at night times how can we help her sleep better
give only boiled water
oranges should be avoided isn't it
You can give her steam inhalation and nasal drops later.
this will reduce her nose block
can we apply vicks
is it goodfor kids
Yes, you can apply vicks vaporub around the nose and the chest area
and is it fine to bathe her
Yes, with warm water should be fine
observe for any other symptoms like sore throat.
fruits such asoranges,grapes are to be avoided isn't it
If viral it should reduce within 4 to 5 days.
If no improvement observed then she might need antibiotics
yes, avoid acidic fruits
Hope you have understood the measures mentioned.
yes..i will start with the syrup from today
thank you for the help
Is there anything else I can help you with?
