Doctor:If the family pediatrician has suggested it, he knows the child better than me, you can go ahead with his advice
Doctor:My advice would be helpful before you u XXXXXXX your doctor, if you had already consulted, it is better to take his advice. Nothing can replace a family doctor's advice.
Doctor:Are you following me?

Doctor:the way she responds to different medications, her frequency of infections

Doctor:Actually when it is dry, I prefer giving Benadryl and when it becomes productive I prefer Ambrolite

Doctor:we just try to manage symptoms with antihistamines
Doctor:like Benadryl, Ambrolite, Tixylix
Doctor:The best thing is to suck out the mucus
Doctor:Mucus forms more mucus, so if you suck it out it reduces
Doctor:Did you follow?
