Phlegm Cough In Children Aged 4 Years Accompanied By Slimy Vomiting?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Phlegm cough in children who do not appear accompanied by other complaints, such as fever, spasms, wheezing, and so on, often is not a dangerous condition. This condition can occur when children are exposed to environmental conditions that are too cold, dry air, smoky, and also polluting. It can also be aggravated by allergies, aspirations (choking), gastric acid reflux, viral infections, or also bacteria. Because a lot of phlegm accumulates in the throat, often a child who has not been able to get rid of phlegm optimally will be aroused by his gag reflex, so he becomes vomiting. So, this vomiting does not necessarily indicate a serious condition.
Besides checking your child to see a doctor, you should also give your child the following treatment so that his complaints improve:
Give the child more to drink warm water Give him also a variety of foods that are warm, not greasy, not berampas, and do not contain artificial sweeteners Limit the habits of the child indiscriminate , change sprey and curtain periodically Give children lots of fruits rich in vitamin C Keep baby from smoke, pollution, dust, and cigarettes Do not carelessly take medicine on babies However, if the cough still does not improve within 1 week, or other complaints appear more heavy, as mentioned above, get your child checked back at a doctor or a pediatrician to be given the best solution.
I hope this helps.
