Suggest treatment for severe cough - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
my kid is 1 yr and 6 days old
yesterday night he was coughing continuously
he has this cough for more than a month
but y'day it was contunous like every 15 min he is coughing
I see, what treatment has been done till now?
we were using TRUMP-D syrup
he doesn't have cold
1 month back he got fever
Has he been given any antibiotics till now?
and antibiotics were prescribed
fever went off
Ok which ones were those?
Ok, that is Cephalhexin
the antibiotic may be resistant to the antibiotic given.
we went to him and he advised not to use antibiotics and he asked to continue with Trump-D syrup
At the same time, try and get him a nebulizer and have him breath in plain saline nebulizations to clear up his airway
The Trump D will not cure anything, if he is having a reaction to the airway, then he needs something like an antihistamine or a steroid med to bring down the inflammation. Since there is no more fever, then more antibiotics should not be needed
but getting a sputum culture is still a good idea for safety sake.
but i'm not a pediatrician, so am hesitant to recommend the same
ok doctor. thank u for ur time.
Do you have any more queries?
