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.
