Medication To Deal With Coughing, Snorting In Children
Dry cough, breathless, and sometimes hot
Thank you for the question.
Coughing, breathless breathing, and body heat up and down may indicate that your child's airways are infected, for example due to viruses or bacteria (including the new Corona virus that causes COVID-19 which is spreading lately). Other factors, such as allergies, gastric acid reflux, irritation, foreign body aspiration, even benign or malignant tumors around the airways can also make your child experience these complaints.
Need to be clarified, how long has the body heat appeared? Does he also appear crowded, vomiting, less active, or experiencing other severe complaints?
If the fever has persisted for more than 3 days or is accompanied by a severe complaint as explained earlier, it is better for you to check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician so that the condition can be handled properly according to the cause. If the complaint is felt severe, your doctor may recommend that your child undergo an x-ray or blood test.
Conversely, if a new complaint lasts 1-3 days without any other serious complaint, you better handle your child first at home, namely by:
Give him paracetamol according to the recommended dosage until the fever subsides Give him plenty of milk and warm water Give him also MPASI which is easy to swallow, not greasy, and not too cold If there are things that make your child allergic, keep them away from contact with your child Condition the environment around the child so that it is clean, the air does not dry (for example by using a humidifier water), and away from other people who are coughing, colds, sneezing, tightness, or fever. Don't panic, and don't just randomly give children other medicines without doctor's advice. ..
