Cough Medicine That Is Safe For Children Aged 1 Year?
Thank you for the question.
Many factors can trigger a cough in children, ranging from exposure to dry air, allergies, irritation, side effects of consumption of certain foods or drugs, viral or bacterial infections, and so on. In more severe cases, coughing can also occur due to asthma, bronchitis, bronchhiolitis, pneumonia, pulmonary tuberculosis, gastric acid reflux, and so on.
Coughing in these children if the new occurrence ranges from 1-3 days, without being accompanied by fever, spasms, vomiting, and other severe complaints is often not a dangerous condition. Therefore, if not seen by a doctor, you should not immediately give your child medicine. Try to overcome the cough first by:
Give him a lot of milk and drink warm water Give him also a variety of foods that have a balanced nutritional value, do not be too cold, oily, especially spicy Keep your child from substances that make him allergic, be it food, cold, dust, pollen, animal hair, and etc. Wash your child with warm water, then wear clothes that warm them up. Keep him away from cigarettes, pollution, and other chemical fumes. Keep the environment around your baby to stay clean and the air does not dry (for example, by not using air conditioning and excessive fans, use water humidifier) Let your child get plenty of rest However, if within 3 days your child's condition has not improved, or if other complaints appear more severe as mentioned above, you should consult your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician to look for further solutions yes..
I hope this helps.
