Q.

4.5month baby has hoarse voice

My 4.5month boy has developed a hoarse voice. He also has a runny nose and a whoofing cough. What can I use for his hoarse voice as I suspect I could be a sore throat.

Paediatrician

It sounds as if your baby has developed croup. This is usually due to a viral infection. It would be best to ask your paediatrician to see him.
