Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Cough and runny nose are indeed conditions that often afflict babies. Apart from allergies or irritation of the respiratory tract, these complaints can also arise due to infection, either due to viruses or bacteria. If no other complaints arise, and if the cough and cold only appear within a short duration of time (1 to 3 days), you can take the following steps to overcome them:
Breastfeed more babies so that their endurance is maintained properly, no additional food or drinks need to be added unless the doctor advises them directly. Give the baby comfortable and warm clothes. Apply also on warm body oils specially formulated for babies. Avoid babies from exposure to cold air. Excessive (including from air conditioner or fan), dust, wind, pollen, smoke, pollution, and other airway irritants Dry the baby in the morning sun so that the mucus in the airways melts Use the air humidifier so that the humidity of the air in the neighborhood You improve If coughs and colds do not improve within 3 days with the steps above, or if other complaints appear more severe, such as fever, spasms, vomiting, etc., do not delay checking your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that handled well huh ..
The nasal drops you mentioned contain the active composition of sodium chloride. With this composition, this drug can help thin the mucus in the baby's nasal cavity, thus alleviating complaints that arise due to coughing and colds. However, in some sensitive children, the dropping of this drug can also trigger allergies or irritations that actually make complaints heavy. Therefore, considering that these drugs are included in the class of free drugs is limited, you should still use it under the supervision of a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
