Thank you for the question.
Coughs and colds without a fever in infants most often occur due to allergic reactions, for example due to exposure to cold temperatures, dust mites, pollen, or certain foods and drugs. It is also possible that coughs and colds occur due to airway irritation (for example when exposed to dry air or smoke), viral or bacterial infections, foreign body aspiration, impaired immunity, as well as gastric acid reflux.
Frequently, as long as the cough and cold occur without high fever, spasms, vomiting, difficulty eating and feeding, or other more severe complaints, this condition is not dangerous. The following efforts can be made first so that complaints improve:
Give your baby more milk and warm water Give him also a variety of balanced nutritional value foods, which are easy to swallow, not too oily, not spicy, and does not cause your baby to allergic Keep the environment around the baby so that it is maintained cleanliness and humidity of the air Don't overdo using air conditioning or the fan around the baby Let the baby rest more Keep the baby from substances that are vulnerable to make him allergic or trigger irritation in his airway. Bathe the baby with warm water, then wear it to warm the baby's clothes in the morning sun, so that the mucus in the airways is more runny and easy to get out Don't give the baby any medication before seeing a doctor If in 1-3 days the cough and runny nose that your baby experiences does not improve, don't hesitate to check it back to the doctor or pediatrician at the nearest health facility for further treatment. .
I hope this helps.
