is a term reserved for serious respiratory infection caused by viral infection for which antibiotics are not indicated. Your child had a bacterial infection for which antibiotics were started. Steroid
is indeed very effective in such cases and that explains that your child is better now. It takes time for cough to resolve. Even when the infection has cleared, it may take 7 to 10 days for the secretions in the form of cough to get completely cleared and the child still continues to remain healthy and without fever
. So dont worry, he would be fine. If it is dry cough
as you mentioned, it can be controlled with a cough suppressant.
