Thank you very much, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Coughing is one of the body's natural defense efforts to expel foreign matter from the respiratory tract. Some causes of cough in children include:
Viral infections such as common cold, influenza
Bacterial infections such as tuberculosis, bronchopneuminia
Effect of weather and environment
Irritation due to cigarette smoke
To determine the cause, a thorough examination must be carried out. The doctor will do a physical examination and additional checks needed such as X-ray examination of the chest, blood, and so on.
Some things to do at home:
Drink warm water
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Avoid foods that are too sweet
Get enough rest
Take advantage of hot water vapor to help thin the phlegm. Accompany the child to sit while the child is breathing steam from a container filled with hot water. Do it +/- 20 minutes
Use child room air humidifier if available
Make maximum handling at home so you can delay to see a pediatrician. That is because COVID-19 outbreaks so you and your family should stay at home and avoid traveling outside or to the crowd. However, if the cough causes disturbances to eating, drinking, breathing, and making wheezing sounds immediately see a pediatrician for further treatment. Use a mask for you and your child and avoid traveling by public transportation.
So, hopefully useful. Maintain health by applying a clean and healthy lifestyle.
