Q.

Bronchitis

Hi. My 2 year old has had this cough. It is a dry cough and she has a fever. She has had the cough for some days now and I have been giving her DPH but there is no change. Could this be Bronchitis and if so, what can I give her as medication?

The problem here is that a child with a dry cough and a fever could have pneumonia. For this reason I do not want to recommend any medication. Your daughter must be seen by a doctor, preferably at your nearest state hospital if you do not have medical aid.
