Zemoxil is a trademark with amoxicillin content. This drug is a penicillin class of antibiotics that is used to treat infections of various types of bacteria, such as infections of the respiratory tract, urinary tract, and ear. This drug can be taken while breastfeeding because it produces metabolites in low levels in breast milk and has no effect in babies who are receiving breast milk. Take antibiotics according to the indications and rules of the doctor.
Grafazol 500 is a drug that contains 500 mg of metronidazole. These drugs include antimicrobials that function to treat infections in parts of the body such as the abdominal cavity, pelvic cavity, and gums. Metronidazole in pregnant women is a category B drug (no risk was found in pregnant women). However, for nursing mothers, metronidazole is excreted through breast milk. So this drug is not recommended for breastfeeding mothers. You should consult your doctor before taking this medicine and tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding.
A cold cough is a common symptom that is often experienced by children. Coughing is a mechanism for protecting the body against germs from outside. Overcoming coughs in infants and toddlers with cough medicine is not recommended until the child reaches the age of six. Mothers must know in advance whether the cough they experience includes a cough with phlegm or a dry cough. Apart from that cough is sometimes also followed by other symptoms such as fever, runny nose, decreased appetite, and swollen lymph nodes. Coughs and colds are often experienced by children because their immune system is not yet developed and the most common cause is a virus. Treatment due to viruses does not require taking drugs, only adequate rest and adequate nutrition. However, if your child has a cough with phlegm or a cold that has changed color, high fever, shortness of breath, vomiting, weakness, prolonged coughing, blueness, weight loss or a history of seizures, you should consult your doctor before giving your own medication to find out the cause of your child's illness. and proper handling.
Things you can do at home to treat coughs and colds in children;
- Increase your fluid intake, either breast milk, water, or soup
- Do not breastfeed while lying down because there is a risk of choking when coughing
- Enough rest
- You can invite him to soak in warm water or sit with him in the steamy room for about 15 minutes. This can expedite the respiratory tract due to mucus.
- If the child is restless sleeping, you can add some cloth over the child's shoulders so that the head is higher, this can help the child breathe.
- If the child is more than 1 year old you can give honey as much as 1/2 teaspoon mixed with warm water and lemon juice.
- When the child has difficulty expelling phlegm, you can help by lightly tapping the back of the child.
Thank you, hope it helps.
