How frequently does he cough?

Does he have runny nose still now?

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 9 months ago.

Hello again,
I was waiting for response from you.

As he is coughing, sneezing, it would be helpful to avoid exposure to cold.
Exposure to extreme cold can impair ciliary movement of the respiratory tract.
Fresh air is good.
When there is good sunlight, he may be taken out for short period of time.
I hope this information will be helpful.
