Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 5-year-old-son has had a cough for the past one month. It looks like he has a dry cough due to dust, as no mucus is discharged. However, it repeats when he goes to play. We gave him the Chericof syrup, Montair LC kid syrup, and the tablet Azithral. He stopped coughing for some time, but he again started coughing. So the doctor suggested the Momeflo nasal spray. Kindly let me know what kind of cough he is having. What would be the best treatment for his cough? He does not have any problems with breathing.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern. He might be having an allergic cough. I suggest you get his absolute eosinophil count and serum IgE (immunoglobulin E) levels checked to confirm allergy. If allergy is confirmed, I suggest you give him the Montair LC (Levocetirizine and Montelukast) kid syrup for four to five months.

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