Hello doctor, my son, a 17-month-old boy, has had a cold for more than a week, with snot until green, just normal body temperature, but in certain parts it feels hotter, such as forehead, palms and soles. During this cold I did not give medicine at all, whether with the symptoms that I mentioned that my child needs to see a doctor or my child is experiencing other illnesses other than colds? Thank you for the response

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

Colds with a thick runny nose from yellow to green indicate that the baby's body is fighting infection by bacteria or viruses in the respiratory tract. The causative microorganisms most often transmitted quickly through the air.

In infections due to bacterial fever symptoms usually appear slowly with the temperature getting higher day by day, the child looks less active, and complaints do not diminish until the child gets adequate treatment. While due to the virus is usually a sudden high fever but the symptoms will diminish in 5-7 days.

If the child has difficulty breathing due to the amount of mucus formed, the mother can help the child remove it with a mucus suction, use warm water vapor, and patted the child's back. Avoid contact with adults who are not healthy, make sure adequate fluid intake, treat fever with administration of fever-lowering drugs.

If the complaint does not improve, take the child to the doctor for an examination. Beware if the child looks heavy, does not want to eat and drink, and looks very weak then the child must immediately get medical treatment.

That's all, hope you can help

Wassalam, Dr. Farah
