Giving Medicine To Babies?
I want to ask when my son was 3 weeks old, he had a cold and then he was treated and given cough medicine and it didn’t take long to recover, now at the age of 1 month 2 weeks he has a cold again, what I want to ask is can my child drink the rest of the medicine and what is the dosage Is it the same when you have the first cold and cough now? When you have a cold for the first time, the dose is 0.1 ml once drink
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Giving any medicine to the baby is determined from the baby's weight and age, therefore if your child has a cold cough again, you should consult a Pediatrician to be weighed again and further examined by a doctor. Your child will be examined in the form of a physical examination, and supporting examinations (blood test if necessary).
Because your baby's dose of medicine when he was 3 weeks old will be different from your baby's age now because of changes in your baby's weight, and different conditions.
Some things you can do for your baby are:
Routinely give exclusive breastfeeding Bathing with warm water Make a room that is enough steam to breathe warm steam If your baby has a cold and cough that does not go away and there are signs of dehydration such as sunken eyes, and dry lips, besides that, the lips look blue. Immediately see a doctor for proper treatment.
