Hello Leny, Thank you for the question.
Have you consulted a doctor before giving your child medicine? Children are prone to infections due to an immune system that has not yet developed optimally. Complaints about a cold cough can be caused by:
The use of cold cough medicine is not recommended for children under 6 years unless recommended by a doctor. Therefore, you should not give this medicine without consulting a doctor first. There are several things you can do at home:
rub balm on your child's back and chest
Take care of your child's food intake and drink
if the child has a blocked nose, prop the head of the child to be higher when lying down
clean the nasal mucus with saline that you can buy at a pharmacy
monitor body temperature regularly with a thermometer
give paracetamol if your child has a fever
do warm water compresses on the forehead and armpits to help relieve fever
Most colds can heal themselves within 1-2 weeks. However, if this complaint does not improve, especially if accompanied by persistent high fever, the child looks weak, fussy, and does not want to eat and drink, please check with your child immediately to see a doctor. Doctors need to conduct question and answer and examine your child before giving appropriate treatment.
Hopefully this information is useful.
