Cough In A 9 Month Old Baby In Winter?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Recurring cough complaints, especially when the air is cold, can occur due to several possibilities, including asthma, which indeed sufferers often experience recurrence when in a cold environment, allergies, disorders of stomach acid and influenza.
Beyond that possibility, it is not impossible that your child also has other conditions, which are not related to cold air at all, such as tuberculosis infections, bronchitis, acute respiratory infections and other respiratory disorders. Our advice is that you should check your child with a pediatrician to see his condition. This is important because some cough with phlegm may require treatment in the form of antibiotics that cannot be used carelessly. By seeing the condition of your child directly, treatment can be given more precisely.
Meanwhile, try to keep him from getting cold when the surrounding air is cold, for example by giving socks and gloves, giving thicker clothing, not exposing the fan to him, regulating the temperature of the air conditioner, and keeping him away from dust, cigarette smoke and maintaining health and adequacy of fluids and nutrients. So, hopefully answering your question.
