coughing and phlem

Good day Doctor,

Just checking,
I nebulize my baby with sabex saline salution everyday as my baby has been coughing alot. Please advise if its ok to use everyday and if there is any side effects if i use it to much.

My baby is now 9 months old and went for his 9 month vacination last week Thursday. i think that the vacination might have worsen his cough. The nurses did say he might have a watery nose and cough after the injection.

Thank you so much for your help and advise

You can use the Sabax saline solution in the nebuliser to help your baby to clear the mucous from his chest.It is unlikely that the vaccination he had recently would affect his chest. The 9 month vaccination is for measles and this does not usually have this kind of effect.
