i have 10 months baby. she is having upper respiratory tract for the last 21 days.?


we have given antibiotic and cough syrup. but when we stop to give medicine, the infection is still working. please give us guidance and suggest some step to cure it.
----------

Oh dear! There are NO useful cough medicines in existence, most particularly nothing that any doctor should give to a 10 month infant. In addition 10 month old children very rarely get bacterial chest infections, so statistically, and according to the NICE/SIGN Guideline antibiotics are not routinely indicated. (http://www.nice.org.uk/nicemedia/pdf/CG69FullGuideline.pdf)

The vast majority of infections are viral and may once the infection has passed, be followed by a prolonged period of respiratory mucosal irritability. If this only produces cough and perhaps a little mucous, in one so young the management would simply be to wait until the membranes re-stabilise, which they generally do on their own. If however there is wheeze and particularly breathlessness the management is usually steroids.If there is any doubt as to what is going on a chest X Ray may soon be indicated.  (+ info)
