Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The cough that your child experiences can be caused by:
1. Allergic reactions, such as dust. Coughing can be an early symptom of bronchial asthma. Bronchial asthma is characterized by shortness of breath accompanied by the sound of "high" breathing when the child exhales. Very closely related to heredity. Parents or siblings may have asthma or other allergic diseases such as allergic rhinitis (which is characterized by sneezing every morning with runny nose), skin allergies when in contact with detergents and others.
2. The habit of small children putting whatever objects can get into the mouth, if not noticed the child can enter dirty things like sand or licking sandals.
3. Rarely given a drink. Water is generally a mouth cleanser to the esophagus from leftover food that is tucked.
4. Rarely brush your teeth. Children who rarely brush their teeth will cause the formation of caries teeth so that it becomes a place for bacteria. So that children often experience strep throat.
You can do an evaluation to find out the factors that cause cough in children. Make the child drink water after eating, brush his teeth 2 times a day and pay attention to the habits of the child when putting things in his mouth. Make sure the child's hands are always clean if the child has a habit of putting his hands in his mouth.
In addition to medication, you can provide natural remedies for coughing children. Namely by making children squeezed orange juice mixed with honey which is then brewed with warm water.
Consult immediately with your pediatrician, if indeed the child is experiencing shortness.
