Identify trigger: The best way to effectively treat a cough is to identify the trigger. There are many triggers including asthma, infections, sinus problems, allergies, acid reflux to name a few. A pulmonologist or allergist can assist in identifying the trigger, so a good treatment for the cough can be offered.

How can I treat coughing and colds in my 4-month-old?

Very carefully!: Cough, cold and nasal congestion are very common in kids under 6 months. Recommended, safe treatments include nasal saline drops, vaporizer, elevating the head of the bed, and occasional nasal suction. If your baby has a fever, refuses to eat, is extremely irritable, or is wheezing, you need to see the pediatrician. Do not use over-the-counter cough and cold meds, even those sold for "infants".

8c of any liquids: The typical recommended amount of fluid to take in daily is around 8 cups. That includes water, milk, juice, other beverages & liquid from foods like fruit. Thirst indicates too little. The ideal varies from day to day depending on heat, activity, etc. However, most women should try to drink a cup at and between each meal/snack and at bedtime to keep the fluid level steady, especially if pregnant.

Vasovagal: It sounds like your blood pressure drops when you bend over or cough... In the normal sense the body is reacting more than what it should. Also you might have to get your blood pressure checked to make sure it is not varying significantly in different positions like laying, sitting or standing. Lastly positional vertigo is a possibility.

No, rest is crucial: Periodsnof rest can be as important as the workouts themselves if you want to improve overall fitness (strength, endurance, speed).

How long does it take for a whooping cough to get over?

UH BOY...: There is a reason why they used to call this disease the "100 day cough". In my experience, it takes several weeks(2-4), sometimes longer. This is true despite all we do to try and make your infection go away. I've had patients who have fractured ribs from whooping cough...
