RE: Re: Please advise

Hi Doc,

In my posted (967) You said it sounds like she may be starting with whooping cough i phoned my pead and asked if he would like to see her or should i get xrays done and he said it this could be anything and just told me to get biosven cough mixture which i should use for a few days and if it does not improve her cough then we can test for whooping cough. Do you think it is okay or should i take her in anyway?As i really dont want it to get very serious before anything is done.

And her age is 21 months (to my question about stopping her bottle)

You can try the Bisolvon for 3 or 4 days but if your daughter is no better by Moday 14 June she should be seen by a paediatrician.have you tried to flavour her milk such as by adding a drop of vanilla essence to her bottle or a small amount of nesquik?If she still won't take her bottle then you can stop her bottle as it is a constant battle provided she is eating a full mixed diet. You will need to give her a calcium supplement.
