Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Coughs, colds and breathlessness have many possible causes, and not all of them can be treated equally. Some of the most common causes of these three complaints are:
Allergies, for example due to exposure to cold temperatures, dust mites, smoke, or other airborne irritants
Rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinuses), which can occur related to allergies, infections, or nasal septal deviation
Tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the tonsils and throat), which can occur related to infection, irritation, acid reflux, allergies, or excessive use of the vocal cords (for example, when you scream too often)
Bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi), which can occur in association with a viral infection, bacterial infection, or exposure to cigarette smoke and other airborne irritants
Bronchopneumonia (inflammation of the lung and bronchial parenchyma), can occur due to infection or aspiration (entry of substances other than air into the airways)
Asthma bronchiale (asthma, chronic and recurrent inflammation of the respiratory tract that causes the airway to narrow and produce excessive mucus), and so on
As noted above, each of the possible causes of cough, runny nose, and tightness may require different treatment. The drugs you mentioned contain oxomemazine and guaifenesin as their active substances. This medicine can help with coughs, colds, and shortness of breath, but it doesn't necessarily eradicate the causes of the complaints. Therefore, complaints can subside, but not necessarily healed completely. In addition, you need to know that this drug is not included as an over-the-counter drug, so you should ONLY use it if it is prescribed directly by a doctor, especially for babies who are less than 5 years old.
We recommend that if your child's complaint has occurred for more than 3 days, you should check it again with a doctor or pediatrician. Bring along the medicine that you often give your child so that it can be evaluated by the doctor, whether the drug can be continued, needs to be changed, or maybe added. Some tests, such as x-rays or blood tests, your doctor may recommend to your child to determine the best treatment.
In the meantime, avoid giving your child drugs carelessly. You can first do the following tips to overcome the complaint:
Do not use air conditioning or fans at home while the child is still coughing, cold, and congested
Apply a special heating oil for children on the neck, chest and back of the child
If necessary, use an air humidifier to increase the humidity in the house
Keep your house, floors, and furniture clean and free from dust and mites
Keep children away from smoke, pollution, and do not come into close contact with adults who have a cold cough
Leave the child in the sun in the morning so that the sputum is thinner
Give the child lots of warm water
Also give children lots of fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C
Hope it helps ..
