Cough Medicine for Kids

 

No matter how much we try to protect our little ones from the bacteria and germs of the world, at one point or another, they are going to catch a cold. At first, this can be an unpleasant experience for both us and our baby, especially during the first time this happens. However, it is nothing to worry about and completely natural in your child’s development as it will help their immune system to develop in the early years of their growth. In their early years, we always advise that your child should be cared for naturally when ill, without the use of medication. This allows their system to develop without the use of drugs. However, if your child becomes very ill we can provide you with flu medicine for kids. This will work to treat every symptom of your child’s cold, from a runny nose to cough.

 

While flu medicine for kids may not be always necessary, it is not easy for lay persons to differentiate what may be the beginning of a life threatening infection. It may be a good idea to drop by at least for a consultation so you are aware of how serious it might be. During high fever, do not cover the child with thick blanket though they may feel chilly cold during the down swing of the fever. Too thick a blanket will push the fever even higher & may cause heat damage ! Lots of hydration will be useful .If the urine shows clear transparent colour means enough hydration is achieved. 

 

When it comes to using any cough medicine for kids, always consult our team first, in order to make sure it is the right medication. If your child has remained sick a long period of time without showing any signs of recovery do drop by our clinic immediately for a consultation.

 

Always Follow the Medicine Guidelines

 

If you have tried everything to help your child recover and they are still struggling, it may be time to resort to medicine suitable for kids. When it comes to taking any medicine, always make sure that you follow the advice of the doctor. If instructions for the medication is not being followed, you might be doing more harm than good and potentially make your child feel worse than they currently feel. If you believe that you have given your child the wrong dosage or medicine, contact emergency services immediately and inform them of the situation. They will be able to provide you with quick answers to what actions you can complete, as well as inform you if you need to go to the hospital.

 

In addition to checking the dosage guidelines, always make sure that you use medicines that have been specially designed for children. We can provide you with everything from cold medicine to cough medicine for children, which uses micro dosages of medicine to ensure they can recover without taking too much. Never under any circumstances use any prescription medication, unless it has been prescribed directly to your child.

 

When A Doctors Trip May be Required

 

If your child’s symptoms do not begin to alleviate after 2 or 3 days, it may be time for a trip to the doctors here at Anteh Dispensary. Bring your little one to us and we can perform a professional examination for them. Here, we will be able to find out if your child needs further treatment or if they just need more rest. Additionally, we can also prescribe you with medication should we deem it necessary.
