A. may be viral any weather change can give your baby mild cold, cough and congestion so learn some handy tips -every time antibiotics are not needed. -give nasivion or nasoclear saline drops for congestion. - give indirect steam inhalation , means steam should not go directly in baby s nose but you should put in a steamer in a closed room so that steam is in the surrounding. -If does nt get better or you feel baby has abnormal breathing sounds then see ur doc as soon as you can for auscultation n examination. -applying any vaporubs in baby s nose is not advised. - for dry cough no medicine is advised , for wet cough you can give syp ascoril LS 2.5 ml 2 times a day - its a myth that some fruits like banana or any odr food items can cause cold, bcz cold is an infection, mostly viral in origin and foods dnt cause infection
