FOLLOW THE ADVICE.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments:

1) Common cold and cough may be due to throat infection (bacterial or viral) or seasonal changes / contact with allergen and dust particles.

Safe antibiotic (like Cephalexin, Combined Amoxicillin -Cloxacillin etc) along with Anti- histamine drug (like Levocetirizine) can be given to treat throat infection and cough. Kindly, consult with her doctor for complete prescription.

I suggest her to take cough syrup like GRILINCTUS along with above treatment for suppression of cough and soothing effect in throat.

2) In addition, she must maintain oral hygiene to avoid throat infection. She can use HEXIDINE mouth wash regularly and brush her teeth 3 to 4 times daily or after taking foods each time.

Some basic home remedies can improve her condition and prevent recurrence:

a) Drink plenty of water or fruit juice to stay hydrated and keep throat moist.

b) Inhale steam or use saline nasal spray to ease nasal congestion and drippy nose.

c) Stay away from household dust, pollens, powders, droplets, smoke, allergen substances etc.

d) Take one teaspoon honey & tulsi juice in the morning or hot drink like milk at bed time is quite helpful.

e) Take hot shower bath, sleep with an extra pillow under head and vitamin-C supplements are very much essential.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish her good health and successful motherhood.

Regards,
Dr Soumen
