Hello there,

Thanks for writing in.

Yes, Please do proceed according to the treating paediatrician's advice.

Montair LC kid might help prevent recurrent episodes of cold and allergies.

In addition, Do try the foollowing measures.

Give her warm water to drink at regular intervals.
Steam inhalation 3 times a day under parental supervision.
Once your daughter gets better,you could try sending her for regular kid's yoga classes. Regular practise of yoga is very beneficial.

I hope I have answered your queries .I will be happy to answer any further queries you might have.

Wishing your daughter a speedy recovery :)

Hi Concerned Parent,

From what you are saying there are two things. one, there is pneumonia which your doc told you. Second, i feel get a Spirometry done to see if she has Asthma. Recurrent Cold cough and frequent use of Nebulisers suggest she might be having the same.
