    • Understanding the Condition

      Infant cough can stem from various causes, ranging from common colds to environmental irritants. It’s a natural reflex to clear the throat; however, when your infant’s cough persists, it may indicate cold, flu, or another ailment.

    • Diagnosis

      Begin by monitoring your infant’s cough and associated behaviours. Take note of the cough’s nature—is it dry or wet? Does it seem to be triggered by feeding or lying down? Also, watch for any changes in colour or pattern to the infant’s skin, especially during coughing spells, as this can indicate a medical emergency.

      Consultation with a Paediatrician:

      A paediatrician’s expertise is crucial for a thorough diagnosis. They will consider several factors:

      Medical History: An understanding of any pre-existing conditions, birth history, and family health patterns.
      Physical Examination: Listening to the infant’s lungs with a stethoscope, checking for signs of respiratory distress, and assessing for fever or other symptoms.
      Symptom Pattern: The frequency, timing, and triggers of the cough, as well as any accompanying symptoms such as a runny nose, teething, or reactions to environmental factors.
