5 Year Olds Cough At Night?
Hello doctor, I want a consul. I have a daughter at the age of 5thn and always sleep using AC (day and night) only when at night she always coughs, the cough is dry cough but if during the day she doesn’t cough. Even though the temperature of the air conditioner was 24 ° but still coughing, his sleep was complete, wearing long pants and thick socks. Is it possible that he is allergic to cough because of the air conditioner huh? It just so happens that my room’s air-conditioner is only serviced after about 1 month or not. Once the air conditioner was corrected, my child coughed. Please answer yes thank you 🙂
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Dry cough or cough with phlegm in children can be caused by a variety of triggers and causes. Requires a series of checks and detailed information collection in order to find out the causes and problems that occur. Some possibilities include:
In the interim you can do:
Avoid the air is too cold or too hot
Avoid using fluffy blankets and feathered dolls
Change and clean sheets, curtains, etc.
Opening the window of the house routinely circulates air roots and the sun's light enters
Avoid sugary foods, chocolate, ice, spicy and chips
If the complaints of coughing that does not go away, it is better if you can see your child to a pediatrician for further examination.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
