Hello Al Insan,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sickness with symptoms of runny nose has indeed become a "subscription" for children. The cause is too many from allergies or infections. However, the infection that most often causes coughs in colds in children is a virus. Handling from the condition of a cold cough is difficult difficult and easily adapted to the child's condition. If the cause of the virus certainly does not require treatment with antibiotics, and if the cause is allergic of course the main treatment is to avoid exposure to these allergens. To reduce complaints in children with colds, the following steps can be considered:
Keep giving breast milk or milk or other liquids that are sufficient to warm the child's chest and back by giving special child oils such as telon oil. Sleep in a higher position to avoid mucus piling up and triggering cough Give warm steam that can be mixed with eucalyptus oil while the child sleep Can be given physiological fluid to open the blockage in the nose. One of the liquids that can be used is 0.9% NaCl. Inhaled with physiological fluids, but this can usually be done at a pediatrician. Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke or dust. Clean the house from dust by using a vacuum cleaner. If the fever can be helped by warm compresses on the armpits and if necessary use a fever-lowering drug. In your case where the child vomits while taking the medicine, it is necessary to think of an irritation in the throat that triggers vomiting, it could be due to inflammation from the throat or indeed indigestion if there is repeated vomiting. If your child's condition does not improve and even worsens, it is advisable to consult and check directly with the pediatrician to be able to do the treatment that is appropriate for your child's condition.
So that I can convey, hopefully useful.
