Treatment Of Cough Accompanied By Fever In Children Aged 1 Year?
Afternoon, my child has a coughing fever sometimes. What is a cough medicine for a 1.4-year-old child? Mks
Thank you for the question.
Cough and fever in children can indicate an infection in the respiratory tract, for example rhinosinusitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, even pneumonia. Sometimes, this cough and fever can also be part of the prodromal symptoms of infection in other organ systems. Other factors, such as allergies, irritation, dry throat, even aspirations of foreign bodies, can also worsen coughing in children.
Not always coughing and fever in children must be treated directly with medication. More often, this cough and fever can improve with natural treatments, such as:
Give your child ASI and warm water more. Limit cold, artificial sweet, and oily feeding. If the child has a history of allergies to certain substances, keep these substances away from your child. In between meals, give him variations of fruits that are rich in vitamin C. Keep children from smoke, dust, pollution, cold, and other substances that are prone to triggering inflammation in the respiratory tract. Let the child get plenty of rest. if you find a fever that does not go away in 3 days, or other complaints appear more severe, such as shortness of breath, vomiting, weakness, difficulty eating and drinking, and so on.
Hope this helps ...
