Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 4-year-old, son, has asthma, and he is coughing so much. He is continuously vomiting, but inhaler and nebulizer are not helping in this case. What should I do?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com. Asthma can be exacerbated with a lot of external factors, the external factor like dust, cold, hot climate, pollen's causes irritation and eventual inflammation in small airway resulting in obstruction of airways, as a result, difficult breathing and lot of expectorating. Kindly limit his contact with the allergen. Keep him well, hydrated. He needs to take bronchodilator or corticosteroid inhaler will help decrease inflammation, improve coughing as well. Salbutamol cough syrup. Ondansetron will help to stop his vomiting. Also, there is so much advancement has been made in homeopathy treatment, and the medicine shows good response in patients. However, ideally, an X-ray should also be done to see if there is any superimposed chest infection if he has had a fever. I think the best will be to see a pediatrician if the condition is not improved. But the points mentioned above should help your son.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
