What is the solution for nasal congestion, dry cough in a a child after home remedies, cough syrup have failed?
My 3.5 yr old son has nasal congestion and dry cough only during night time,especially in the early morning hours. Day time he is fine. Tried using steamer and vicks vaporub on chest before going to sleep. But it dint work. Tried to put eucalyptus oil on the pillow when nose block starts, it was temporary relief. but again nose block starts. Am giving cough syrup also. But not working. Can you please advice ?
I am so sorry to hear about what your child is experiencing. From the information you have provided, this seems to be some sort of allergy. Maybe the changing temperatures in the course of the day are responsible for this. Try and keep this child warm especially during these hours. If it doesn't work, then you should consider trying some anti allergy medications like zyrtec/benadry to control this.
I hope this addresses your query fully. Feel free to ask for clarifications and more information if need be. I wish you well. Thanks for utilizing our services, we very much appreciate it. Dr. Ditah, MD.
