Children often suffer form recurrent respiratory infections. Every time an antibiotic is prescribed. Ima warns not to give antibiotics so frequently. As a result, the infection keeps happening and then the child develops cough as the body tries to take out all the mucous of the precious recurrent infections. I strongly recommend not to give any couch syrup as it will just be a temporary suppression. The cough will return again after the suppressive action of the drug is exhausted.
