Because cough is the only manifestation of respiratory diseases, begin treatment with the underlying cause. To do this, follow the prescription (if any). Yourself your baby heat treatments and do them regularly for the past 2 weeks because the cough can last even long after recovery.
For the treatment of cough, especially in young children, use more heat treatments than medicines. Warm need especially the baby's legs and chest. Therefore, the baby must constantly be warm wool socks and a jacket or vest, and both day and night (even if the room is warm).
Do not use often, antitussives, since cough is just a protective reaction. And he brings phlegm from the lungs and bronchi of mucus and bacteria. With a strong paroxysm of coughing give kid a candy made of burnt sugar or syrup of licorice.
If a baby has no temperature, then during sleep (when the baby is moving less) attach to the gastrocnemius muscle and the upper part of the chest mustard (Packed in paper), and not soaked in water. So they will take longer to warm and will not cause the baby discomfort. Also good to put them in the evening before bed.
Mix mustard with warm compresses – potato or cabbage. To compress the boil in their skins potato one (up to a stomach condition). Hot quickly mash. Add three drops of iodine and a tablespoon of any vegetable oil. Wrap everything in foil in the form of a flat rectangle. From the other side, which will be applied to the breast in foil and pierce a few holes. Then (depending on the temperature of the compress) lay one or two layers of diaper between baby and breast with foil. Fix the cross regular diaper cover and baby blanket.
Equally effective in the treatment of cough is a compress of cabbage leaf smeared with honey. It has a warming and sweet, because the honey contains almost all vitamins and minerals. However, after this compress, observe the baby's skin, as any product of beekeeping can be an individual reaction. The appearance of such, immediately discard this procedure.
To liquefy and sputum discharge give your child warm milk with honey or without, warm fruit drinks and fruit drinks, which can add a bit of broth hips (drinks with rosehip drink, drink only from a straw, to prevent the destruction of enamel). If the child is over 3 years old can be given tea with lemon. I think any warm drink has a mucus thinning effect and helps its passage, causing the cough reflex. Include in the diet of the baby sufficiently warm mashed potatoes with lots of milk. This dish helps in the treatment of cough.
