Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Respiratory tract infections are actually very diverse conditions. In medicine, the following diseases arise by an infection of the respiratory tract:
Bronchitis Pneumonia Croup Bronchiolitis Whooping cough
And the reasons why this infection can occur in children also vary, among the most obvious is that children are not very well immune and these children are not immunized. In addition, the presence of family members who smoke, lack of hygiene, and a dirty and polluting living environment also play a role in the susceptibility of children to disease.
Regarding your child's condition, there is no problem with his history of DPT immunization, but it is not recommended to clean the child's nasal mucus with a hard object because it can injure and trigger bleeding. Our advice, since your child's infection has been long enough, you should check your child with a pediatrician for further tests, especially if accompanied by fever, shortness of breath, the appearance of an unhealthy baby, and so on. In the meantime, give your child more breast milk, keep it away from sick people and cigarette smoke, and make him breathe in high humidity by inviting him to soak in warm water or sit with him in a steamy room for 15 minutes. So, hopefully it answers your question.
