Cough: Pertussis is "whooping cough". A disease caused by infection w bordetella pertussis and the symptom that stands out is the intense paroxysm of cough followed by a inspiratory whoop.

Teething: A temperature over 38.5 is probably not attributable to teething. an appointment with a Pediatrician would be advisable.

Not safe: Hylands homeopathic drops have been recalled in the past for risk of toxic side effects from one of the ingredients, belladonna. The concentration of belladonna was found to vary between preparations. I would stick with nasal saline drops for relief of cold symptoms. For teething, I would recommend massaging your baby's gums and using a teething toy like sophie the giraffe. ...Read more

My son is 19 months and weighs 10.1kg. He is teething and has a cold. Can I give him 2.5ml Telfast and also an Empaped suppository?
Check: Neither med is available in US. My understanding is that Telfast is for allergic Hay Fever, and Empaped is for fever/inflammation. That's a lot of meds for a transient problem. Would advise consulting with pediatric dental specialist, a Pedodontist. All children should have 1st dental ck-up by age 1, so your son should already have a relationship with a Dentist who can best advise you. ...Read more
