Q.

4 month old coughing...

Hello Doc!

My 4 month old baby started school recently, needless to say, he is a bit sick!
He had a runny nose, but we suck it out with the baby-vac which seems to help! And I spray his nose with sterimar.

His nose seems fine now, but he gave a few coughs this morning. Can I spray his nose with Illiadin for 5 days?

And is there anything other then Reuteri that I can give him?

Thanks so much!

So far you have treated your baby's cold very well indeed. Continue to keep his nose clear with the Sterimar and the suction device. Do not use the Iliadin in such a young baby. Give the Reuteri to boost his immunity. If he has difficulty in feeding or sleeping please take him to see your doctor.
