5-6 month old...

Hello doctor!

My boy will be 6 months old next week saturday, and weighed 8.2 two weeks ago at his checkup.

He was on Zithromax two weeks ago because he had mucus in his lungs...
And I think it is back now!
I spray his nose with Sterimar, suck it out with the baby-vac, we give him Reutori and Zinplex in the morning, and I also sometimes put two drops of Covomycin-D in his nose. And he has been touching his ears alot.
I still breastfeed him, and he started on solids a week ago.
He is in a creche.

What else can I do for him?
He starts coughing at night. And coughs for about an hour before he sleeps again....
I have Duolin and Pulmicort as well as a nebuliser.

What will be the best treatment?
And will Physio help?

Sorry for the long post!

Thank you so so much!

Your baby is a good weight.Keep up with your efforts to clear his nose. He is getting the correct treatment, The problem is that he is at a creche and is getting repeated infections already.Give him Mucospect twice a day to help to clear the mucous from his chest.You are boosting his immunity well.
