Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Feeding is good she eats her 3 ounces every 2 hours. She has a rubny nose for the past couple of days but it seems to slow down but now she has an intermittent cough
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 7 months ago

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for her symptoms.
There can be an infection.
It is often viral & subsides in 3-5 days.
I would advise to her examined by her doctor.
At this age, cough medicines should not be used without prescription.
You can keep the room warm & humidified.
That would help in coughing.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Wish her healthy life.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
