can you pls suggest some good cough pediatrician? My son has been coughing since last Fri. The cough is rather phelgmy and he chokes on his milk. =( He vomitted a few times cos of that. =( Brought him to Dr EK Ong on Mon. However, the cough still sounds phelgmy. He still chokes on his milk.
should I wait longer or bring him to another pediatrician? Any suggestions on good cough pediatrician?
A friend taught me this, is to cup your hands and pat your child's back and chest. Do it for about 10 mins and a few times a day. After a day or two, your child will cough out the phlegm.
My son gets phlegmy too and this really works for him.
Did the doctor prescribe you flumicil? It is a pretty good med to dissolve phlegm.
My son is currently seeing a pediatrician who doesn't allow me to use a nebuliser because he believes in letting the body recover on its own. If you're interseted, I can give you his addy. PM me if keen.
My pediatrician did not prescribe flumicil. Not sure if its cos he is too young? He is 10 mths old now. He is on mucsolvan syrup for phelgm.
dear son is seeing Dr EK Ong too. he is very good at treating cough. hmm actually cough needs 1 week to fully recover and the phelgm needs around 1-2 weeks to fully clear. not so fast to clear. since he just see pediatrician on mon, y not you just observe? now is only wed, 2 days is too short for phelgm to clear. =)
i agree with apollo, come on, even adult's cough also dont recover that quickly.
i dont think your doc only gv you 2 days med right?
you shld wait at least one week before you decide.
Well, I guess its mother's instinct. Know that Dr Ong is a good pediatrician but somehow after these few days, my boi's cough didnt improve. Luckily, I brought him back to the pediatrician again. Cos, his cough is indeed worsening and he got another set of medicine to clear his chesty phelgm.
