The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

2.5 hours ago we gave our 3.7 yrs old triaminic night time cold and cough (2.5 ml). Now he has 100.2 f fever and gave him ibuprofen (5ml). Is it safe?
Yes: Always make sure that the ingredients in one drug don't overlap with the other, so you avoid overdosing (classically, it was very easy to overdose on tylenol due to the amount of acetaminophen-containing medications). There does not appear to be overlap between these two. Hope he feels better! ...Read more
Cold preparations: Over the counter cold medicines do not reduce symptoms enough to risk the side effects including changes in heart rate and blood pressure.

Is it okay to give a 1.5 year old Triaminic? What is good for a persistent cough likely from allergies?
It depends: Children's Triaminic products can be given to a child of 18 months but only those with acetaminophen/dextromethorphan. Children's Triaminic products with pseudoephedrine (decongestant) or chlorpheniramine (antihistamine) should not be given to children under six years. If allergies are thought to be present than you need an antihistamine like cetirizine for children. Check with your pediatrician. ...Read more
I am 31 weeks pregnant can I take nighttime hylands cold and cough to help my cold symptoms so I can sleep?
I would say NO:
Herbs in Pregnancy is a huge topic. Hylands has about six herbs in it including Goldenseal which is generally considered to be contraindicated in pregnancy as it may cause premature contractions.
Could use Robitussin, (guaifenesin) Hall's cough drops or cepacol lozenges, Vick's plain cough syrup or chicken soup.
hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
Viral infection: Cold and cough usually means a viral infection in the nose, throat, mouth, ears, etc... Cold viruses fly through the air, but they also are on the places that people touch, such as faucet handles, door knobs, phones, keyboards, railings, etc... If one does not breathe in the viruses, one can still catch them by touching the viruses and then transferring them to one's own eyes, nose, or mouth. ...Read more
Cough: The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages & exposure to dust, fragrences, smoke & other irritants. Baby tries to flush these out of the nose with mucous but this often ends as congestion & produces rattling with breathing& cough. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from baby's environment & this will happen less. ...Read more
Soup!: A study done years ago at a superb jewish hospital in miami showed people given chic hen noodle soup recovered from "colds" faster. I've always suspected 2 reasons;all the antibiotics we feed chickens (although most colds are viral-antibiotics are not helpful) or the soothing and mucus helpful properties of warm liquids in the upper airways. And fond memories of mothers tending us when we were young. ...Read more

Fever/ pain – acetaminophen/ nsaid’s rest! ...Read more
Best cold treatment: Days 1-3 are the itchy, sneezy, runny phase. Take antihistamine and, if you can get it, ipratropium bromide. 06% nasal spray. Days 4-7 are the congestion phase. Use afrin 12 hour nasal decongestant spray --don't use it for more than three days -- to keep you nose open. If you are not completely better within two weeks from when it started, then you probably have a complication like sinusitis. ...Read more
Nothing much: A cold and cough in an otherwise healthy 22 month should run its course over a 1-2 week period of time. There really are no proven or, more importantly, safe medications that will help your child. Using nasal saline with suction may help relieve some of the nasal symptoms. Use tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for fever. ...Read more
Not novaclox: Likely your cold and cough are viral in nature. Zyrcold is a medicine that can be used to break up mucus. So that sounds fine. But Novaclox is antibiotic and since your cold is likely viral in nature, Novaclox will not help. Rest, fluids and if you want Zyrcold would be fine. ...Read more
