Coughing is a spontaneous reaction of the airways which actually has a protective effect, especially to clean the airway of foreign objects and the response of the airways to viral infections and bacterial infections.
Some causes of coughing in infants or children include:
Viral infections that attack the upper respiratory tract (ARI), bronchiolitis, bronchitis,
Bacterial infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis
Cough due to allergies
The baby's immune system is not yet fully developed, so it is easy to experience infections, especially respiratory infections that are transmitted from the air in the environment around the baby.
Both viral and bacterial infections of the respiratory tract will cause an increase in mucus channeled by the breath. Mucus or phlegm is what is trying to be removed when coughing in the form of thick or thin. The presence of this mucus raises the natural response of the airways to expel it by giving high pressure in the form of cough. Unfortunately, in babies the reflex is not perfect, so often babies will tend to cough accompanied by vomiting to expel the phlegm / phlegm.
Coughs and colds are generally caused by viral infections whose healing is influenced by the baby's own immune system and keep the baby away from exposure to the environment that is vulnerable to infect. So you do not need to worry about the possibility of other diseases if you do not find other significant symptoms such as difficulty in breathing / shortness of breath, tip of feet, hands and lips turn blue, babies are not actively breastfeeding, fever above 39 degrees continuously, babies are often fussy, spasms to his body is stiff.
Generally, cough due to a viral infection will heal by itself in approximately 2 weeks. If the cough does not heal, it needs to be re-evaluated whether the closest person also has similar symptoms, such as family, neighbors, playmates or guests who come home and touch the baby without knowing that they have a cough or cold virus. This certainly increases the risk of contracting the virus and causing the baby to not heal. Lack of maintaining environmental hygiene and infant nutritional status also affects the health condition of the baby.
While Belekan in babies is generally a normal thing, if the production of eye dirt is not too much.
Some causes of choking in infants, including:
Dirt that comes out while sleeping
Blocked tear flow
Infection / conjunctivitis
You also do not need to worry if your baby is still choked when the production of dirt is not too much, the baby is still easy to open his eyes, not yellow or greenish, there is no white dirt like pus and tears do not come out excessive. If there are any of these signs, do not hesitate to consult a pediatrician.
Prompts you can do is clean the eye dirt with cotton / gauze that has been moistened with warm water with caution. Don't forget to wash your hands before cleaning the dirt and afterwards. Avoid your baby from direct exposure to a dirty environment and limit the interaction of others to prevent further infection.
To help reduce the complaints of coughing and fever in your baby, often give fluids to babies such as breast milk or formula to help relieve coughing and thin the phlegm. Breast milk is also rich in nutrients and can help increase the baby's immune system. Elevate the baby's head position while sleeping or while breastfeeding. Don't panic when the baby coughs hard to throw up. In addition, avoid babies from exposure to unclean environments, cigarettes, or people who suffer from cough colds or other infectious diseases.
In addition, you should be careful in giving medicines. Infection, which is suspected to be caused by a virus, does not require antibiotics. Improper administration of antibiotics can harm the baby's condition. Eye ointment can be considered through direct examination results by the treating doctor.
If the symptoms are getting worse which is marked by a high fever baby, continuous vomiting, shortness of breath which is marked by an increase in the frequency of breathing (more than 50 times), do not want to suckle, fatigue, convulsions and babies tend to sleep often, then you should immediately consult a specialist doctor children to get a direct examination and evaluation and consideration of appropriate therapy.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
