Good evening..!!

Its one of the common complaints received from parents.

Till children attain a certain age of 7-8 years, they mostly get frequent attacks of respiratory tract due to their low immunity levels.

Avoid pollution / smoke / known allergens / dust etc which trigger cough episodes.

Since the problem is since 4 months, might consider a consultation with pediatric pulmonologist for further complete evaluation.

Thank you, have a nice day..!!!
