A Cold Cough Medicine That Is Safe For Nursing Mothers?
Good afternoon, doc. I am a mother who has a baby of 7 months and is actively breastfeeding. Now I am coughing a cold that is very annoying, my child is also so it has not healed for several days until his tongue now spots white dots. Then what medicine can cure my cold cough that does not reduce my breast milk production, also for cold cough medicine for children aged 7 months Thank you for the answer
Thank you for your question.
White tongue on a baby is basically often found in a baby's bada, this happens because the rest of the milk is still attached to the baby's tongue. However, if the white baby's tongue is accompanied by fuss and does not want to suckle, then this should be considered. White tongue accompanied by fuss is usually caused by a fungal infection. This happens because the baby's immune system is still not perfect, causing the baby to be easily infected.
But you don't need to worry, you can do some of these tips at home, including:
Clean your child's tongue and mouth with a clean gauze or lab. After finishing breastfeeding, clean and sterilize all feeding and drinking utensils. If with this, your child's tongue is still white, immediately consult your child to the pediatrician.
Basically, cough and cold medicines in mothers to drink are on average safe for consumption, including: decongestants which to relieve nasal congestion such as pseudoephedrine, dextromethorphan to reduce coughing, paracetamol to reduce pain, and antihistamines for allergies.
