Hi Ayhu,


Coughing in infants, especially at an early age, can occur due to several factors such as environmental factors that are not clean, the presence of other family members who are experiencing similar symptoms so that they can transmit to the baby, or the presence of other triggers. For this reason, try to be diligent in cleaning the baby's living environment such as mattresses and others, avoid children from interacting if there are neighbors or other members who are sick, and avoid exposure to cough triggers such as dust, cigarette smoke, and others.


To overcome cough with phlegm in infants, several efforts can be made, the first is more fluids, in this case by giving breast milk more often, besides giving warm steam to help relieve the baby's breathing.


If the sound of the child's cough is more severe, such as groaning, the child becomes difficult to breathe, immediately consult a doctor. The doctor will provide treatment, one of which is inhalation therapy or often known as evaporation if needed. Of course, this action is adjusted to the child's condition, and the provision of therapy is considered by the doctor starting from the type of drug given, the dose and also the child's medical condition. This action is relatively safe if given according to indications.


Hope it is useful,
