If the baby coughs, babies

Probably the most common complaint a pediatrician has to hear: A child coughs. What to do?. My children are no exception, and every time we look for new ways to deal with cough. Fortunately, not so often we have to deal with him.

Why do you have a cough?

Even from school biology lessons, I remembered that coughing, sneezing, runny nose – a protective reaction of the body. So is it necessary to fight them? Yes, just need to deal with the causes of cough.

There is a cough from irritation of cough receptors, which are located in the mucous membrane of the larynx. When the airway is violated, a cough appears, which, together with the exiting sputum, relieves the body of germs that cause diseases.

Cough is different

Only a pediatrician can determine the causes of cough, but parents, carefully watching the baby, can understand why he is coughing. And not always cough is a sign of a cold.

Somehow my youngest daughter caught a cold. The temperature rose, at night there was a strong cough. There was no coughing in the afternoon, but at night she almost suffocated. We were urgently sent to the hospital with suspected stenosis. Fortunately, everything went well. There was just a strong cold.

And it happens that kids start to cough when something gets into the larynx. We must always watch out for them so that nothing accidentally swallows.

Cough medicine

You can buy various cough medicine at the pharmacy. But self-medicating is dangerous, because cough and its causes are different. And that means that the drugs should be applied different.

If the child has a dry cough, then prescribed drugs to liquefy sputum. Such drugs are produced in the form of syrup for children. True, my children flatly refuse to drink them, even if necessary. Sometimes fraudulently give the medicine by adding it to tea or water.

If the cough lasts a long time, prescribe drugs to suppress the cough reflex. But they can not be used with a wet cough.

For us, an ideal cough remedy is the Barsuchok special cream, which needs to be rubbed in the back area. Children under six months should not be rubbed. My girls are happy to give them a massage. But when buying ointments for grinding you need to pay attention to their composition. If the ointment is purchased for a child under two years old, it should not contain camphor.

Mustard plasters

Very often, mustard plasters are used to fight cough. Now the pharmacy is selling mustard plaster for children. I don’t know if they make a difference. In general, I am wary of them and never did. But the doctor advised me to put a mustard plaster for seven or ten minutes just in socks.

Mustard plasters cannot be placed often and one must be most careful with them in order not to burn the baby. Maybe I’m afraid of them in vain?

Folk remedies for cough

My mother is a fan of traditional medicine and teaches us about it. I am not against folk remedies, and if they help, I will use them with pleasure.

There are many folk remedies for the fight against cough and, perhaps, many of them have known since childhood. For example, my mother often gave us radish with sugar or milk with honey. But do all the kids agree to eat this?

I found the best folk remedy: carrot juice with honey. All mix and give the child 4-5 times a day, one tablespoon.

I wonder how you treat cough in children?
