Q.

dry mouth

My boy is 8 months old now, i took him to the docor for a mild flu, but now what i've noticed is that his mouth is very dry and he is still coughing, but the nose and eyes are not running anymore. What is the best medicine i could use to stop this wet cough of his and what can i use to soothe his dry , cracked lips, vaseline does not help.

I am concerned about this complaint as it is unusual in a baby of this age. Take him back to your doctor and ask if your son could have had an illness called Kawasaki's Disease.
