1 Answer:

Hello Nabilla, Thank you for the question.


Have you consulted with your pediatrician to determine the cause? Coughing that occurs for 3 months is classified as chronic cough. This condition needs to get further doctor's attention because in general it requires further treatment. Symptoms of a long cough can be accompanied by symptoms of sore throat, shortness of breath, fever, excessive night sweating, weight loss, decreased appetite, and others. Whooping cough / pertussis is a bacterial infection of the respiratory tract that is easily transmitted. Symptoms of whooping cough can last up to 12 weeks. In addition to whooping cough, some of the causes of long-standing cough in children are:

tuberculosis
asthma
sinusitis
gastric acid reflux
allergic cough
psychogenic cough

If these symptoms do not stop, especially if the child continues to experience a high fever or weight loss, you should immediately check your child to the nearest pediatrician so the doctor can re-examine your child to determine why. The doctor will probably do a blood test, Mantoux test, x-rays to confirm. Further treatment can only be given by a doctor after knowing the exact cause.


In the meantime, please do the following suggestions:

avoid exposure to dust, animal hair, pollen, cold air, and other air pollution in children
give water to children
give lemon juice mixed with honey to help relieve coughing
keep the intake of nutritious food for children, give food in small portions but more often
keep ventilation in the house still good
invite children to play as one way to manage stress

However, if there are symptoms of shortness of breath (rapid and short breath of the child or a flat nose), you should immediately take the child to the nearest hospital emergency room so that it can be treated immediately.


Hopefully this information helps you.
