Hello Imelda, Thank you for the question.
Flu is an infection of the respiratory tract (attacks the nose, throat, and lungs) caused by influenza virus. This condition can cause symptoms of nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, sore throat and fever. Flu is a contagious infection. Flu transmission is from splashes of coughing or sneezing or indirectly, for example by holding objects that have been exposed to splashes of coughing or sneezing. In general, the flu will improve by itself and does not require special medical treatment.
You can do the following suggestions:
let the child rest sufficiently
keep breastfeeding if you are still breastfeeding your child
take care of your child's intake of nutritious food and drinks
give a warm drink or encourage the child to breathe warm steam from a bowl of hot water if the child has a blocked nose
clean the snot by spraying normal saline into the nose
give paracetamol if the child has a fever
Giving cough medicines and colds for children under 6 years is not recommended except by doctor's advice after the doctor performs the examination. If this complaint is very disturbing or does not improve for more than 2 weeks, please take your child to see a doctor so that the doctor can do an examination on your child to find out your child's condition and the doctor can provide treatment that is appropriate to his condition and that does not interact with the drug. antituberculosis which is being consumed.
Hopefully this information helps you.
