Child has cold,fever, cough, taken antibiotics, doing nebulization. Will Vent-PD help?

Hi Doctor, My daughter is 3years and 3 months. She started going to playschool 2 months before for that time she is having having severe cold . Once had antibiotics later after two days again it started so her doctor suggested for nebulization. then she was alright but after 2 weeks again she got slight fever then the next day cold and the next day severe cough . Now she is again doing nebulization. I just want to stop this nebulization. Actually when I was small i had the same issues then doctor suggested to have Vent-PD . Will that medicine help for my baby?

good evening, as per the symptoms history and family history , ur child might be having hyperactive air ways. nebulisation will do no harm to the child nor the child will get addicted to it as u have thought. u have to avoid dust smoke strong odors , cold enviornment , plant pollen, chalk dust etc which r triggering factors for the cough. vent pd will help in this situation but not permanently. she might get cough again, just watch for the severity involved in the cough- fast breathing chest retractions audible wheezing soud ect, she ll need an emergency care in these situations. kindly review wid ur doc for a detailed evaluation and rule out asthma, thank you.
