Hi Dr!
I really need some advice. My lo has just turned 10months, has his german miesels injection last week. But about 2 weeks ago, he got this cough. Took him to the Peadiatrician and he gave me celestamine and Iliadian. Have my baby both for about a week. He is still coughing. NOt so much, but lastnight he was really bad!
Was coughing from 3 this morning! He was so bad that the threw up! I have gave him some cough syrp that pharmacy told me was safe for him and that seemed to help for about an hour. Then he started again! Other then the cough, he is 100%! No fever or anything! Could it be a alergy to something or teeth or what?Please i really dont know what to do anymore!

Your baby had his measles immunisation last week, not german measles. His cough seems quite bad and because he vomits with the cough he may have a form of whooping cough. Please ask your doctor if he thinks that your baby could have whooping cough.
