Cough should not be treated at this age
Hello... cough should not be treated in this age group.
Cough is a protective reflex.
Unless the child is having severe respiratory distress, inability to feed and high grade fever more than another one degrees Fahrenheit and grunting along with bluish discoloration of the lips and fingers you need not worry.
Please keep a watch on the respiratory rate and if it is more than 60 beats per minute he will require hospitalization.
Do not apply any oils for Vicks on the baby.
