How can my baby be cured of a prolonged cough ?

hi,i m angela, i just want to inquire regarding my daughter s condition right now. She s 12months and three days ago she had a non-productive cough then hours later she started to sneeze and she developed a runny nose,I thought she;s just having a viral infection but up until now, her cough and colds are still present and she has skin rashes already all over her body including the scalp area, the rashes are red and itchy and the rashes look like skin bumps, her eyes are watery and puffy. She used to have eczema and she had asthma attack when she was months younger. I am only giving her Ambroxol right now for her cough, but when she started to have rashes I don t know what to do and what to give her, she keeps on crying because of irritation. .Hope you could help me with this.

Hi, Angela,
Thanks for query,
Your daughter seems to have allergic bronchiolitis.
There should be some allergyfrom inner side out from outer side.
As there is h/o eczema in the past so this may be due to eczema.
Find out the cause of allergens and avoid them.
Go for blood test to rule out bacterial.viral or allergy.
Give anti allergy syrup,cough suppressant and if require go for antibiotic medicines.
Consult your doctor and get investigations done.
Ok and bye.
