Thank you for the question.
Cough in children does not always need to be treated by taking medication, especially if it only takes 1-3 days. Frequently, coughing like this indicates that your child has allergies, irritation, and even infection in the respiratory tract. Other factors, such as asthma, foreign body entry, bronchitis, reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus, infection in other organ systems, impaired immunity, and so on can also cause a child to cough. Because of coughing, the abdominal muscles will contract more violently so that the stomach will feel pain. Not only that, coughing can also disrupt the quality of sleep, so that makes the next day the child feels dizzy.
As a first step, the following steps can be done:
Limit your child from consuming foods and cold drinks, artificial sweetness, oiliness, and seizure Give your child more water to drink warm, brothful foods Give him also variations of fruit rich in vitamin C Keep your child from cold, smoke, dust, pollution, fur animals, and other substances that are vulnerable to make your airway inflamed and trigger coughing Keep the environment clean around the child Also teach him to maintain his cleanliness If there are other people around the child who cough, keep it from contacting the child close to him, and ask him to use a mask Compress warm stomach aches Do not use excessive air conditioning and fans, especially at night when the child sleeps Use a humidifier if possible Cough on children needs to be examined directly to the doctor or pediatrician if it does not improve within 3 days, accompanied by fever, tightness, vomiting, and other more severe complaints.
Hope this helps ...
