If the cough has occurred only in the last few days, in most cases it’s a viral infection and will go away on its own.  However, if the cough is persistent and accompanied by persistent fevers and if your baby is not feeding well, then you need to go to the clinic or see a doctor.  Tuberculosis is a concern in our country and if the symptoms are persistent (more than 2 weeks) you need to go to the clinic or see a doctor.  Try and avoid buying over the counter cough medicines and those that dry up the nose.  They don’t really make too much of a difference to young children and may even be dangerous.
