Losec Mups and immune boosters.

Morning Doc!

Wrote to you a while week or so ago about my girl having croup and have not stopped coughing for 2 weeks. She is 22 months.
Anyway, seems she actually has silent-reflux and allergies...

My fist question, what is the correct way to give her the losec mups? Can I crush it, or is it better to dissolve it in boiling water?

Then, is it possible that my little one can be allergic to bananas?
That can cause her to cough the whole night, although she is on Zyrtec and Avamys?

And then, We live in Pta, so evenings are not so cold, but the mornings are very chilly. She is a very restless sleeper, so covering her is not an option. Don''t want to dress her to warmly, but am afraid she will get cold? Do you have any suggestions?

Last one, we give her Gummy Vites and Viral Choice on alternative days? Is this a good combination?

Sorry for all the questions!!

Thank you so so much for always answering and giving good advice!! It really means a lot to clueless mommies like me!!
Appreciate your time!!

Thank you, you are welcome. You must first dissolve the Losec Mups in a little water. Your little girl could well be allergic to bananas, this is a fairly common allergy in children.She is getting good vitamins and an immune booster. Your question about what she should wear at night I will leave for our regular forum members to answer.

I dress my LG in thin long sleeved clothes, because she sleeps better then. She kicks her blankets off, but if she is in short sleeved clothes she cries in the mornings when it is cooler.
