Relieves Cough In Babies Aged 5 Months?
Morning, I want to ask. My child is 5 months old, he has had a cough for quite a long time, but only a dry cough, then a few days ago my son had a more severe cough, so he often coughed up phlegm and kept vomiting. Doctor, please
Hello Ita, Thank you for the question.
Coughing is one of the body's defense mechanisms to remove irritants or mucus from the respiratory tract. Cough can be divided into cough with phlegm and dry cough. Dry cough is a cough that does not produce mucus / phlegm. Dry cough in children can be caused by:
flu laryngitis allergic reaction stomach acid reflux asthma Vomiting can occur after coughing, and this condition is a normal condition. This is due to an increase in high chest pressure when coughing which causes pressure on the stomach so that the baby can vomit. How long has your baby had these symptoms? If this cough doesn't get better or if your child is short of breath, fussy, pale, difficult to breastfeed, or has a high fever, please have your child checked by a pediatrician immediately. The doctor will ask about your child's condition and check your child's condition to determine the next treatment.
You can continue breastfeeding. Do not give any medicine without a doctor's advice.
I hope this helps.
