Question:Six month old boy baby having cold and severe cough How many days i suppose to give antibiotics
Answer: Hi dear,
Cold and cough in babies are quite normal as their immune system is still developing.comfort your child by keeping him warm in this changing weather. Make him sip warm fluids through out the day,that will help him to stay warm inside the body and also flush out germs. Massage his feet and palms with warm mustard oil. Steam is an excellent decongestant.put few drops of eucalyptus oil in boiling water and make the child inhale it. You can also make him sip this decoction.boil some water,put few tulsi leaves,cloves,grated ginger,half teaspoon ajwain. Reduce it little,and make him drink 1 table spoon every hour.stop any kind of dairy and fruits at this stage.you can make clear soups for him with crushed pepper. Tomato soup would also be good.as it is rich in vitamin C which would help his immune system to go stronger.add pinch of turmeric in whatever soup you make.its antiinflammatory agent would fight his infection. Viral infections would finish its course by 2 weeks atleast.antibiotics is only recommended,if there is any chest congestion and fever.other wise viral infections donot require antibiotics.ask your doctor for the dosage and course.
Question:How many days will take to cure baby cold and cough ? Drops are given prescribed by Dr ?
Answer: Hello dear, it will take to cure atleast 1 week. you can try this for cold and cough..
Give him breastfed on demand, don't force.
While sleeping , her head was kept raised with the help of pillows so that she could breathe easily.
Heat a tava and dry roast 5 garlic pods and 2 tsps of ajwain. Once roasted , make a pouch out of it in a clean muslin/ wash cloth. This pouch was warmed , and rubbed on baby’s chest and back when she was sleeping. This helps to dissolve the phlegm accumulated in her chest .
boiling garlic cloves in mustard oil and applying it externally on chest and head of baby also helps...
kept vaporizer on in the room with tulsi leaves where she sleeps , so that the moisture helps her to breathe and soften her congested nose....
Your breast milk is full of antibodies that will keep your baby strong and will help your little one fight against infection and germs.
If your child's really uncomfortable, visit ur doctor.
Hope it helped, Take care urself...
