Hello lybrate-user, I can see you have given meds for wheeze, hopefully after paediatrician advise. First we have to understand that cough is a protective reflux of the body. Second, the medicine will depend on what causes the cough, whether it's viral uri or allergic type. If it's viral and if the child is otherwise active, playing and eating well, nothing needs to be done other than observation. If there's wheeze the meds you mentioned will help. If the cough is persistent and disturbing child's activity and sleep, then I would suggest to show the child to a peds.

First of all there should be wheeze before giving nebulization asthalin. It should not be given before medical consultation. Kindly visit a pediatrician to rule out urti and lrti or it is just allergic and seasonal.

Flohale and budecort respule should not be taken together as they serve same purpose. Try allegra 120 mf once a day with saline gargles. Add ceftum 500 1 tab twice/day if fever. Better consult a resp. Phy.

Sir, I feel your concern. As a neutral doctor I would say that it may go on for a long time or may be for ever. These medicines are wonderful relievers but do not create immunity against allergens or infections. For that I lay stress on the use of supporting ayurveda treatment. Not that allopathy is bad but as said you should try to create immunity in the child. There are very simple herbals designed for children also. These are not quick relievers but give result in the long run and are safe, side effect less. If you agree, pl scan the latest reports/ prescription etc of paediatrician and send. Till then pl continue with the current treatment.

Both have almost same combination and composition, but the quantity differs in syrup and drops. Ie) if a vitamin is 2 mg in syrup, it will be 0.5 mg in drops. Drops is recommended for birds and pups.

The average volume of semen produced at ejaculation is 2 to 5 ml. Volumes consistently less than 1.5 ml (hypospermia) or more than 5.5 ml (hyperspermia) are probably abnormal. Lower volumes may occur after very frequent ejaculation and higher volumes are seen after prolonged abstinence.

Strictly speaking, diabetic should avoid alcohol completely. But if you insist on taking it, ensure that your blood sugars and all other parameters are normal. Then, you may take one 30 ml drink of hard liquor (usually containing around 45% alcohol) per day. However, if you are on Insulin, avoid alcohol.
