Q.

strong medicine

my 8 mnth old daughter has been sick with a cold on and off for about 4 mnths now. She has now been given a very strong medicine to clear her chest. This is extremely strong and takes her breath away completely. Is there any other way that I can give her this meds. Can I give her Creche Guard to build up her immune system.
Is it advisable to take her for a complete check up to maybe try and find out what the cause is of her always being sick

Paediatrician

Yes, you have answered your own question here. What is needed is a proper diagnosis of your baby's illness. It is highly unlikely that she would have a cold for 4 months. Before giving her an immune booster it would be best to have her seen and carefully checked by your paediatrician.
