Hello

Thank you for trusting HCM

Dear you may be suffering acute viral infection may cause viral pharyngitis with bronchitis. No need to use steroids until you feel dysnea or breathless Ness. Just use antibiotics and bronchodilators and expectorents. Be patience why because this infection due to viral may take 7-14 days. So don't be aggressive about it. I think I answered to your question if you have more questions please feel free to ask.

Take care

My 3 year old daughter has a persistent cough which is keeping her awake at night. During the day we have sprayed with a saline nasal spray which seems to be loosening the mucus and allowing it to be discharged through the nose when sneezing. We do have a neublizer at home and Duolin for our 5 year old son. Would it be appropriate to give this to her? If not what can we do to make it easier for her to have a peaceful sleep? We have had her at the Dr twice in the last 2 weeks. First time she had a viral infection and had a course of anti-biotics. Second time she was running a high temperature and the Dr said that she had full blown flu, prescribed rinex and pain medication. Has started vomiting and dirohea since.

My daughter is 3 yrs old. She had traumatic injury of the ear with ear swab 12 days before. i.e.,on 20/7/11. There was little bleeding of the ear on the 1st day. then on the 3rd day mucoidal discharge was present. So visited ENT doctor(on 23/7/11) on whose advice -- (A)cephalexin syrup was given 250mg bd and (B)sofracort ear drops( which is framcetin + dexamethasone + gramicfin combination)2 drops bd. He put Ichthamol glycerine pack for the ear. Visited the doctor after one day gap. The mucus discharge was still there. (C)Ambroxol Hydrochloride syrup was prescribed 2.5ml bd. (started on 26/7/11). (D)Levocetirizine dihydrochloride syrup 2.5 ml once daily in the night was started on 27/7/11 as she was scratching in the night putting her finger inside the ear while sleeping. On 30/7/11 the discharge has reduced ,but still present. Doctor said the antibiotic should be changed as well as the ear drops. but to continue with Drugs (C)ambroxol and (D)levocetirizine syrups and he started with (E)Augmentin syrup bd and (F)Betnasol-N ear drops 2drops twice daily. My query is --Is my child undergoing the right treatment and will the medicines affect her adversely. or is there any alternative treatment for her condition.
