Hello Fitri Lambok,
Coughing is a way for the body to get rid of bacteria or allergens found in the airways. Generally, the symptoms of cough can go away on its own, but if the cough does not heal within a few days, it should be checked by a doctor.
Coughing caused by infection, you should get appropriate treatment. As for some examples of cases of cough due to infection include:
whooping cough or pertussis. also called a hundred day cough because sufferers can experience this cough for three months. the cause is a bacterial infection Bordatellla pertussis. cough sound in this case is very typical with the pattern of the patient will draw breath through muult then cough hard continuously. Children under five as well as the elderly should be more vigilant because it can run the risk of complications if not handled properly. Pertussis in infants will get treatment in an isolation room to prevent transmission, besides that the doctor will provide antibiotics and other drugs to overcome this disease and oxygen to help breathing.
bronchitis is inflammation of the airways (bronchi) which can be caused by viruses or bacteria. there are two types of bronchitis namely acute and chronic bronchitis. some symptoms experienced by bronchitis sufferers include: coughing with or without phlegm, the body feels weak and the chest feels tight.
pneumonia or inflammation of the lungs. This condition can be caused by a viral, bacterial or fungal infection. The most common case is caused by a bacterial infection. pneumonia is one of the highest causes of death in the world. pneumonia is characterized by coughing, fever, shortness of breath, pain when breathing and the body feels weak.
because your child is currently 6 months old, you should consult a pediatrician directly to get the right treatment.
You should not give any medicine without doctor's instructions, if you are still breastfeeding, give ASI as often as possible, and keep the child away from people around who experience coughing.
