Paediatrician

There is no treatment as such but using a nebuliser if needed or other supportive treatment may be necessary if your baby is short of breath. The illness usually lasts about a week.

Hi,
Are you talking about the RS-VIRUS?

If so its basically its severe coughing, sneezing, snotty noise and breathing difficulty, my ped gave him a sort of like asthma pump and a coughing mixture (help with phlegm) he didn’t gave any antibiotics as it’s a virus.
