Does Ventorlin and Maxtra help stop a child from coughing?
My 13 months old daughter has started coughing today. Please suggest.
We have syrup Ventorlin and Maxtra available with us which were prescribed to her 2-3 weeks back when she was having cough and cold just in case we can use those syrup readily available with us right now.
Possibly due to viral cause.
Irrespective of treatment it may last for 7 days.
I have gone carefully through the details and understand your concern. Most often such symptoms are due an allergic component. Treatment is supportive and usually comprises of anti-allergic medication and mucolytic. The blocked nose is also due to the same cause. Giving Montair LC Kid (Monteleukast + Levocetirizine, prescription medicine) should help. Cetirizine is an over the counter alternative that can also be given instead. Maxtra is another alternative that can be given. You can give Ventorlin, if there is wheezing or respiratory distress, not otherwise
Some children are more prone to catching cold and recurrent episodes are seen. If your child is otherwise active and playful, I would not be concerned. If not, it would be a good idea to visit a doctor and to get the child evaluated. A blood allergy test would need to be done in that situation. Desensitization therapy based on the reports should help.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Sorry for the inadvertent delay in responding. I would need to ask if the baby was born preterm. If yes, I would consider the developmentally normal and nothing to be concerned about. A baby is supposed to be able to stand without support by 12 months from the expected date of delivery. Gradually proper walking would ensue.
The speech development is normal.
