Long cough, preschoolers

It is considered normal for a child to cough no more than once per hour – the so-called physiological cough. If the baby coughs more often, it bothers you and it, then you must first find out the cause.

At the height of the heating season, almost every child begins to cough more often. This is due to the fact that the air in the room is dry, the mucous membranes of the nose and throat, respectively, too.

I even noticed on my own that I began to wake up more often because of thirst, I drank a minimum of a liter of water during the night, my daughter did the same. I tried to hang wet clothes in the room, put containers with water – there was no result. But after putting a humidifier near the bed, the cough disappeared altogether on the second night. By the way, he uses about 3 liters of liquid overnight. Agree, to achieve this effect with the help of wet linen is impossible.

For a year and a half, my daughter coughed for a long time (weeks 3). There was no dry air, no other symptoms. Twice a week we visited a pediatrician who checked for wheezing (they were never there) and the throat (it was not even pink).

As a result, we were sent to Laura, who, as soon as she heard a cough, immediately said: the child has pharyngitis (inflammation of the back wall of the pharynx) and prescribed biseptol in syrup. Cough completely disappeared on the second day.

Another case of coughing was last summer – no other symptoms or wheezing, the pediatrician and ENT said that they could not identify the reason, perhaps this is an allergy. However, my daughter is not allergic at all – she can calmly eat a sandwich with red caviar and drink fresh orange juice. Yes, and I, on arrival from the hospital, the first thing I ate a huge bowl of strawberries, despite breastfeeding.

Just at that time, we were visited by relatives, among whom was a pediatric pulmonologist. She suggested that it could be a cumulative allergy to honey. Ie, 2 years his daughter ate, and the consequences appeared only now. And the truth is – after excluding honey from the diet, the cough passed within a few days.

As in the case of dry cough, self-healing is not worth it. Doctor’s control is necessary – it is necessary to listen to the lungs at least every two days in order not to miss bronchitis or pneumonia.

Many mothers practice this method of treatment, as a good child to hover in the bathroom, so even with herbs. Now imagine that a child has bronchial sputum, which, under the influence of hot steam, naturally increases in volume. If a child is less than a year old, then he is simply physically unable to spit it out. It is easier for older children to do this, but mothers soar before bedtime, and in the supine position it is extremely difficult to clear the throat.

By the way, the same applies to expectorant syrups (based on ambroxol, for example) – they must be taken no earlier than one hour before bedtime.

Pharmacy counters are now full of cough syrups. However, in Europe and the USA, their effectiveness in comparison with abundant drinking has not been proven.

As a preventive measure for respiratory diseases, I now give the child an oil solution of chlorophilipt and lollipops of Islam (based on Icelandic moss, they are great for mild dry cough).

And, again, do not be lazy to once again look to the doctor. After all, a child can not immediately get sick, for example, pneumonia. Usually, it all starts with a slight cough, and the sooner you identify the cause, the better it will be for your child!
