Hello doc ..

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

First of all, I want to confirm beforehand, whether the diagnosis of pertussis has indeed been established by the pediatrician who examined your child? Does your child have never received a DTP vaccine before?


If indeed your child has been diagnosed with pertussis by his child's doctor, then here are some things you need to do:

Take medicine (antibiotics) given by the doctor until it runs out
All families who have exposure to children should also receive treatment (because pertussis is very contagious)
Let the child rest and sleep more
Install an air humidifier / humidifier in the child's bedroom
Give more drink to children
Give small amounts of food, but more often to avoid vomiting
Avoid children from allergens or respiratory tract irritants such as cigarette smoke, mosquito repellent, or excessive air pollution
Teach children to wash their hands frequently and also teach the correct cough etiquette (cover mouth and nose with the inside of the elbow)
Avoid exposure to other children

There is no specific food or drink that is recommended or not recommended for consumption, just make sure you provide nutritious food that is complete for children, give food a little more, but more often, if the child experiences vomiting should avoid giving food that is too oily and too much contains gas separately for a while, you can also provide food that is easier for children to digest (such as giving food that is softer and thinner).

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
