What causes recurrent cough inspite of using medicines? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help?
my son is 16 months old
sorry month not week
we consult the dr. he prescribed the medicine and nebulizer
we give the medicine as per his prescription , but the problem arise after 5-6 days again
we consult agin then he priscribed the medcine & nebulizer again
and here we notice when there is wheather cahnge
he suffered the same problem
why this problem arise again & again...
at evening and night he had more cough
To better answer this question i need more details about your baby's condition
& if weather is XXXXXXX or hot he had no cough
Does he have any other symptoms?
Does he get fever?
he is well active no fever, taking food proper
Does he get sputum with cough?
only cough with sputem...
What colour is the sputum?
when weather change we feel, some chest sound...
What is the sound like?
like congustion with chest sputum...
Does he have difficulty in breathing?
he played well in day time
Two things are coming to my mind
Second is asthma
bronchitis is inflammation of the respiratory tract
Can you tell me the medicines prescribed by the doctor?
dr prescribed AB phylline 0.9ml BD
Does your baby go to a daycare ?
otrinoz drops ...1drop in each nostrils sos
Day care means
no he lives in joint familiy
Are there other kids in the family?
I am thinking that he may be getting recurrent infection from them
What is the source of food and water in your family?
food is home made
water is RO treated and bolied
How many episodes of cough does he get in a day?
last 4weeks he suffered by 3 times
means curently 3 time
from today we are giving neb budesal (1mg)-1ml + 1ml normal saline ...tid
My advise is as follows
Give him budesal or duolin
It is early to give him budecort since it is steroidal preparation
plz .suggest qty. and sechdule
Even LIMIT THE USE OF AB Phylin to only as needed basis
neb..Duolin 0.9ml+budecort (1mg) 0.9ml.....tid
can we give ?
I think he should get relief with duolin only
duoline 2ml ...tid
These are inhaler medicines and are given to cause dilatation of bronchi
either you give duolin or budesal
duoline 2ml ...tid ...for 3 days
vboth have same compound
Yes if he is having cough for three days
why give it unnecessarily
as i told you he has cough only in evening to night
It is an antiallergic
You can give it during those times
Find the trigger
Some kids get such symptoms from activity
In which case avoid eercise
now from today we can give budesal 0.5mg...2ml...tid or sos
If it is asthma,
or instead of 0.5mg 1mg...2ml
If it was my kid I would give sos
Give the minimum necessary
The best thing is to avoid the trigger
It may be dust pollen weather change
Like you are saying
ok sure i will take care of this thing.
Both budesal and duolin have salbutamol
If breathing difficulty then give ab phylline if budecort does not work
now plz suggest the neb sechdule with mg. (concentration of medicine.)
for example if you are giving him budesal
start with a lower dose
may be 0.5 mg in 2 ml once in afternoon and once before sleeping on bad days
Does he inhale it completely
we give him without mask only vapors in front of his nostrils.
Does he get better with this mode
yes our dr suggest this..
If it is working then good enough
may be not 100% but can say 60-70%
ok dr thanks for your valuable time & suggestion.....
if any suggestion
I think your baby will do fine
Do not worry and do not put him under stress
excessively crying can also induce coughing etc
thanks a lot
dr he had no stress but we have...
create a positive environment around him
ok dr fine
He will outgrow it with time
again thaks for your suggestion.....
