Hi Doni,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Fever accompanied by cough in infants is one of the most common complaints. The cause can be a viral or bacterial infection, can be in the respiratory system, or it can be in other organ systems. Generally, this condition is mild and will improve within 1 to 2 weeks. Children are more susceptible to this infection due to their weak immune system. Transmission usually comes from adults who are in close contact with him.

If your child's fever and cough have lasted more than 3 days, have been treated by a doctor but have not improved, you should return to the doctor. Possibly, in addition to a physical evaluation, the doctor may also recommend that your child undergo further tests, such as blood tests or x-rays. Through this examination, possible conditions that require special treatment, such as pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma), bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi), bronchiolitis (inflammation of the bronchioles), tuberculosis (flecks), bronchial asthma (asthma), congenital heart disease, and so on.

At this time, you should first do the following efforts:

Give the baby exclusively breast milk to increase his immune system. Keep the living environment clean and with good air circulation. As much as possible, avoid using cotton bedding or those containing fur. Compress the child's neck, armpits, or groin with warm water to reduce body heat. in the morning sun (before 9 o'clock) so that the mucus in the airways melts Keep children away from adults who are coughing colds Keep children from exposure to allergens and irritants, such as excessive cold temperatures, pollution, smoke, cigarettes, animal dander, flower pollen Hope this helps yes..
