Remedy For Cough In Children Aged 3 Years?
Hello. Good morning. My child is 3 years old 6 months. Cough from last night until this morning. no fever. still actively playing. What drug is good for reducing my child’s cough.
Hello Asri, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Due to complaints experienced by your child for just 1 day, the possible causes are still quite extensive such as ARI, inflammation of the throat, bronchitis, asthma, or influenza where for the first treatment can still be done alone at home by consuming cough medicines that are sold freely on the market specifically for children -children by adjusting the dose of administration as stated on the packaging of the drug you will give to your child.
For the type of drug or brand of cough medicine that should be given by yourself there is no specific reference and you can adjust it to the function stated on the package to suit your child's condition (whether cough with phlegm or dry cough).
If the drug has been given for 5-7 days but there is no improvement, is getting heavy or accompanied by other complaints such as fever, nausea, vomiting, difficulty eating / drinking, or the child becomes inactive, immediately consult a doctor to get more therapy right.
In addition to administering drugs, it is also advisable to avoid your child eating hard-textured foods such as fried foods, chips, or crackers. Increase the daily supply of water, you should use warm water. Also make sure your child gets enough nutritious and balanced food intake and get enough rest every day.
I hope this helps.
