How To Handle Cough And Cold In Children 1.5 Months?
afternoon, sorry I want to ask my child 1.5 months old if I have a fever but in the morning it is not accompanied by a cough and runny nose often vomits danger right huh?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fever, cough and runny nose in babies are most likely to indicate an infection in the respiratory tract. This condition can be caused by viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms. Excessive coughing can make a baby vomit more easily. This is actually not always dangerous. In most cases, respiratory infections in infants can heal in 1 to 2 weeks with proper treatment.
Aside from infection, your baby's complaints can also be exacerbated by allergies, irritation of the airways, to aspiration (the entry of foreign objects other than air into the airways). You should first take the following steps to relieve your baby's complaints:
Breastfeed babies more often, after breastfeeding, burp the baby so as not to vomit
Do not give babies extra food or drinks other than breast milk, without direct advice from a doctor
Avoid babies from excessive cold temperatures, smoke, pollution, dust, and other potential allergens (for example animal hair, pollen)
Don't use a fan or the air conditioner is too cold
Compress the baby's neck and armpits with warm water, bathe the baby with warm water, and also give the baby warm clothes to reduce fever, cough and runny nose
Dry baby in the morning before 9 o'clock so that the phlegm and snot melt and are easier to remove
Do not carelessly give a cold cough medicine to infants without consulting first to the doctor
If the fever does not improve within 3 days, or other complaints appear more severe, for example shortness of breath, frequent vomiting (more than 10 times a day), diarrhea, colic, bluish, etc., immediately check your baby directly to the doctor or a specialist. children to be given the best solution huh ..
I hope this helps.
