What is the remedy for cough?

my daughter went to bed in the evening as normal. woke up about 12:45am with symptoms sounding very hoarse, weazy and coughing- almost similar to a croup like cough. she appeared extremely warm to the touch but when temperature was taken, only 97 degrees via the forehead. this is not her normal cold symptoms .

Hi,

As of now you can give her syrup Benadryl and if the cough is not better in 24 hours please consult her pediatrician.

Do not make her cry or agitated.

If she develops inspiratory breathing noise like stridor then she will require emergency medical attention.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology
