Q.

COUGH ON 5MNTHS OLD

Dear Doc, I have 2 boys, 5mnths and 4yr old. My 4year old constantly has viral infections and infects his baby brother. In May they were both admitted for bronchitis. He (5mnths)was well after that but now has a dry cough and a runny nose. He does not have fever. What can I give him?

You need to keep his nose clear. Use Salex nose drops twice daily.Give him Mucospect 2.5ml [half a medicine measure spoon] twice daily to clear mucous from his chest. Also give him a probiotic to boost his immunity such as Reuteri drops 5 drops daily for 10 days.
