Q.

Re:Urgent - baby coughing all night

Pead advised to nebulize with Pulmicort and Duolin every 4-6 h, and if no improvement in 24 h, then chest x-rays.
Whats with the awful viruses in the Cape area this season? I heard today that a young baby died at Stellenbosch MediClinic. Its horrifying.

Paediatrician

You can certainly use the nebuliser with these medicines. The only reason that your baby may neeed an Xray is if the paediatrician suspects that your baby may have pneumonia. Otherwise this is not necessary.
