Response: Sick babies should always be evaluated in person. I would recommend taking baby back to the doctor if he seems worse.

Probably medication: Salbutamol and theophylline are both asthma medications, and often help with cough, but irritability is a common side effect. It could mean that the child is getting too much for his weight. A nebulizer might be better. Don't give any more medicine untgil you discuss it with your doctor.

Chest image: The lack of response to medications concerning. Please see acute care today. Cool air mist, nasal saline and keep upright bat a 30 degree angle. Flu, CoVID and pertussis screening recommended.

Is it possible to get rid of watery eyes, runny nose, and coughing mucus in a day?

Watery eyes: Sounds like you have a viral illness. Take an over-the-counter decongestant and see if this helps. A saline nasal spray is also helpful. Drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. If you are still having problems after 7 days, call your primary doctor.

Hard 2 know!: You have symptoms of uri, strep throat, viral pharyngitis and it could be many other things. If you treat this symptomatically with warm saline gargles, acetamenophen or ibuprofen, rest and liquids and you continue to have issues or worsen, see your pcp. Strep throat is a concern.

It's possible!: If you and your husband don't want to have another baby right away, don't have unprotected sex. You can get pregnant after delivering a baby, before having a first period! most couples don't want to have two babies so close together. Ask your doctor about getting a pregnancy test before getting a birth control shot, and be certain to tell your doctor that you have been having unprotected sex.
