The Cause Of Prolonged Cough In Children Accompanied By Vomiting?
Hello … my child is 23 months old. Why do you wake up often during sleep because of coughing, coughing up, even vomiting even when it’s blue. At the age of 16 months it was X-rayed and the test was good but it was negative. It has a brand of medicine but it seems like that. As a mother … I can’t bear to see each day consuming batk medicine.

Coughing in children who do not heal is most often caused by allergies. Different types of allergens can trigger coughing in sensitive children. Some common examples of allergens are cold, dust mites, pollen, mold spores, and so on. This allergy is strongly influenced by genetic factors (heredity). If you, your partner, or your close relatives have a history of allergies, then your child's risk of experiencing allergies will also be greater. In larger cases, in addition to allergies, you can also experience shortness of breath, additional breath sounds (wheezing), to difficulty sleeping.
When you have a cough, your stomach and chest muscles contract strongly enough. In children, this condition can cause vomiting. Excessive coughing can also cause breathing activities to become heavier. As a result, oxygen that enters the body can be reduced, and children also appear bluish.
In addition to allergies, there are many more conditions that can trigger a cough in children, for example rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinuses), tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and tonsils), bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchus), pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma), asthma bronchiale (asthma bronchialitis ), gastric acid reflux, and so on. These conditions are mild, but some are dangerous. Distinguishing each of these conditions is important to be able to provide adequate treatment. Therefore, if you feel your child's complaints have not improved even after undergoing treatment from a doctor, you should check it back to the doctor or a pediatrician, right? Some checks, such as blood tests or re-x-rays can also be recommended by doctors if necessary.
In addition to having your child checked by a doctor, you also need to know, overcoming a child's cough should also be done with a healthy lifestyle. If your child has a cough due to allergies, then preventing contact with allergens is also very important so that complaints do not always recur and recur. Here are our suggestions:
