Colds, Cough With Phlegm Difficult To Remove And Fever In Infants Aged 5 Months?
Good night, I want to say, my baby is 5 months old. After 3 days I have a cold cough, I have a lot of runny nose, and my cough is phlegm, but I can’t get it out, is there any way to expel the phlegm? Even though I have gone to the clinic and in his mouth steam and nose, and given the drug Hofanoxil, u0026amp; pasaba. is it safe for my baby to use the medicine? Because I have obtained the following as recommended, but it hasn’t healed … even my child’s runny nose comes out a lot, so does cough, always coughing, ank I am very fussy when he is healthy, and safe for the baby when bathed, his head is washed , but I bathe using warm water, before I bathe, I give medicine, is it safe or what? Please explain, because right now my child is coughing a cold, and his body temperature sometimes fluctuates, thanks in advance🙏
Hello Ms. Diana! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Cough colds are common in children. When sick, children will become more fussy. You should pay attention, your child has started to improve or not. If it has started to improve, you should continue the treatment. The drug given by the doctor contains antibiotics. The doctor may have considered a bacterial infection after examining your child directly. Antibiotics must be taken even if the child has improved. Pay attention to the amount of milk she drinks and make sure the child can rest well, especially at night. Also pay attention to children's activities, whether the child is still active in playing. If your child does not improve or even worsen, immediately bring it back to the doctor. If the fever goes down but the child is getting weak (no fuss anymore, always wants to sleep), immediately take your child to the nearest emergency room for further examination. A child with a fever that does not go down for 3 days should be examined by a laboratory. A child who is still permissible may bathe and indeed should remain bathed (including shampooing). Leaving children in the shower does not actually cause new problems for children.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
