What medicine can I give for a baby suffering from cold? - Online Doctor Chats
hello doctor goodmorning
How can I help you?
my baby boy who is 8 months 12 days old is suffering from cold for past couple of days..
Proceed with your question.
Are you there?
we went to nearby clinic, but no use with those medicines..
we used otrivan as well
there is lot of mucous coming his nose..
and we are able to hear some noises while breathing
except cold problem..
plz tell the right medicine dr.
Is he having fever?
May I know what medicines were prescribed to him at the clinic?
Let me brief you.
and at times he is rubbing his eyes a lot dr.
Both these condition are self resolving
and medicines given are to reduce symptoms alone.
This condition takes it time to resolve.
Some children have these symptoms for 3-5 days,
some have them for more than a week.
Rekoryl is a good medication which you should continue as per doctors advice.
The noise you hear from breathing is due to blocked nose.
rekoryl is for cough na dr
last night he was unable to breathe through his nose..
because of mucus..
You can use nasomist into both nostrils
that should clear the blocked mucous and help him breathe better.
please continue as advised by your doctor.
If his congestion doesn
*doesn't improve in the next 3-4 days or
if he develops severe cough again and high fever
At this point of time, the medicines prescribed is good. You will have to give it some more time.
Have you followed?
Do you have any questions?
he is not showing any interest in eating too, we are forcefully feeding him..
and what kind of food we should give him regularly to develop immune system..
If this is a recent symptom after the illness, it will improve.
But I think
you are talking about general low appetite.
All children at this age make a fuss about eating.
They wish to play rather than eat.
You need to try different methods to feed him. Play with him while feeding. Change his food after a week.
Add new products gradually.
In addition to this
vitamin A drops?
If you aren't giving any, you can use zincovit drops and arbivit drops (1ml once a day) regularly for the next 2-3 months.
can i get this with same name?
Vitamin A is available as arbivit drops.
you can check at the nearest pharmacy.
If his appetite is too low
and if he is refusing to eat
despite plenty of changes and trials
you can consult his pediatrician for evaluation.
Have you followed?
Do you have any other questions?
Thanks for consulting me.
thank you very much..
Bye for now.
