Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Cough in infants is generally not directly related to the consumption of certain formula milk. More often, cough in babies is caused by an allergic reaction. The trigger can be due to cold air, dust mites, pollen, animal hair, and so on. Typically, these coughs often repeat every time the allergy trigger appears.
However, consumption of formula milk that is not appropriate, can cause stomach acid production to increase. If this stomach acid rises up into the esophagus, it can cause irritation to the throat which manifests as coughing. In addition to coughing, signs of inappropriate milk consumption can also be in the form of difficult weight gain, vomiting, colic, skin rashes, diarrhea, or even constipation.
It needs to be clarified beforehand, are there other complaints that accompany your child's cough, such as fever, shortness of breath, vomiting, lump in the neck, and so on?
If so, you should immediately see your child's doctor for further treatment. In quite severe conditions, in addition to a physical examination, the doctor can also perform further tests, such as the Mantoux test, X-rays, and so on. This examination is also carried out to rule out other possible causes of cough, such as bronchopneumonia, bronchial asthma, ARI (acute respiratory infection), tuberculosis, heart function disorders, and so on.
In the meantime, try the following tips first:
As much as possible, breastfeed your child until he is 6 months old to increase his immune system. Before giving formula milk to your baby, consult your doctor. Avoid giving milk using a pacifier, replace it with a spoon or cupfeeder. Keep baby away from allergens (as mentioned above) Dilute it mucus in the baby's throat by drying it in the morning sun regularly. Keep the environment around the baby clean. Hope this helps.
