Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A cough that has lasted 2 months or more stirs into a chronic cough. This chronic cough can be caused by various conditions. Some things that can be thought of as the causes of chronic cough are as follows:
Allergy to dust, smoke or certain types of food that your child consumes
Cough in asthma. This condition is characterized by a cough, especially at night and the child wakes up and is generally accompanied by shortness of breath and wheezing
Presence of chronic infection. Things that can be considered include tuberculosis infection. Contact with people with tuberculosis or tuberculosis around the house can trigger an infection.
Recurrent viral or bacterial infections. Due to the body condition that is not fit, the child's immune system is deficient and causes recurrent infections of the airways.
Exposure to cigarette smoke from the surrounding environment can cause bronchitis in children.
If an allergy occurs, it is necessary to pay attention to the allergen that causes or triggers it. Clean house dust using a vacuum better and with a wet cloth so it doesn't fly. Avoid storing too many books and clothes in the child's bedroom, avoid using carpets. Nebulation therapy does require repeat therapy and the most important thing is the medical condition that underlies the cough in your child. Take a look at some of the factors mentioned above. The need for a Mantoux test to determine whether there is a tuberculosis infection or an allergy test needs to be discussed with your pediatrician.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
