Q.

Nebuliser

Good day Doctor

I took my son of 18 months today to the doctor for a persistant cough, he said it is a bronchitis and has recommended I get a nebuliser to help him. He has also presribed two medications for the nebuliser, one being a combovent. Could you please advise me on whether the nebuliser will help as well as how many times a day I should use it. Must I sterilise all the equipment after each use? Thank you

This will help your son's chest a lot.You can use the medicines in the nebuliser twice a day. Keep the nebuliser clean but you do not need to sterilise anything.

My doctor borrowed me a nebuliser for the winter, it works fantastic, it's just a hassle to get my son to remain calm and seated!
