Morning docSo my child is 1 month 4 days, he has 2 years and a half and has a cold cough
Hello Aisy, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Coughing and colds are one of the most common complaints experienced by a child, and the most frequent cause is due to a viral infection in which complaints will generally improve within 7-14 days.
To overcome complaints that have just occurred, you are allowed to give cough medicines and colds that are sold freely on the market specifically for children with the dosage given in accordance with the packaging. It is not recommended if your child is sick but you are taking drugs because of drugs that are It may also come out together with breast milk that will not effectively treat your child because it has been metabolized in such a way that it will not work optimally. Also not recommended to give papaun antibiotic drugs without clear advice from a doctor.
If your child's complaints (both the older sibling and the younger sibling) do not improve or aggravate within 5-7 days, it is advisable to check with your doctor for further evaluation of other possible causes and what further therapy should be given.
In addition, it is also advisable to limit contact that is too close if one of your children is sick to help prevent transmission. You should also encourage the older brother to use a mask as long as the complaint is still present, keep hands clean and make sure to cover his mouth and nose every time he coughs to prevent transmission to other family members or other people who have contact with him.
I hope this helps.
