The cause of cough itself can vary where in children who are undergoing chemotherapy can be more vulnerable because the body's condition can be decreased due to the side effects of chemotherapy. The cause of cough itself include allergic reactions, respiratory infections, throat irritation due to stomach disorders such as triggered by nausea and vomiting, the presence of other respiratory disorders such as asthma and others.
In the meantime a number of things can be done to overcome a child's cough by getting enough rest, give enough drink, avoid coughing triggers such as exposure to dust, cigarette smoke and others, enough to nourish the child. And for the drugs themselves, it is better to consult with a pediatrician who treats your child to adjust to the coughing conditions that arise and adapted to the cause. Cough medicine can later be given to stop the cough response or help expel phlegm. Help also make the room not too dry which can trigger coughing with an air humidifier or provide children with warm water vapor to help cough.
May be useful.
