Hi,
Thank you for your query.

The most likely diagnosis would be flu like syndrome, probably viral in nature.

I hope she does not have any fever.

If someone in the family has a similar ailment then viral disease is confirmed.

Give your child nasal decongestants round the clock, add a mild antihistaminic syrup, and some muclolytic drops.

If she persists to have severe cough, has respiratory distress or develops high fever get an X-ray of the chest done and consult your pediatrician.

Hydrate her well and feed her some feeds at regular intervals.

Hope this answers your query.
If you have any other queries, kindly direct them to me.
Wishing your child a speedy recovery. Have a nice day.

My 29 year old son has bee very sick for a month. He got a flu and respiratory like illness at holiday time. Unfortunately it has turned to something else. He doesn t have stomach pain. However he can t eat or drink without vomiting. He has had an endoscopy and they found a hiatal hernia. However the dr. said this is common and couldn t be causing this. He has lost 32 lbs in the past 3 weeks. He is living on the bathroom floor. I don t know what to do for him.

Last wednesday my 4yr old was sick with the 24hr flu bug and the past 3 days I noticed that he has pale to white stool and he says he feels sick but that is when I ask him to eat something and I was just assuming he didn t want to eat the rest of his food on his plate. He does look a little pale still and I looked online about the stool and it caused me concern and was wondering if I should be worried. I don t see any major symptoms and he is still very active.

Any other suggestions, so I can be the Baseball Mom I want to be, LOL.
