Customer reply replied 2 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 2 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.

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.
