My daughter is about to be 1 year old, and she is having cold cough in her chest. Doctor has advised Asthalin 5 ml morning and evening. I would like to know for what purpose Asthalin is used, and is it advisable to give such a small kid.

Hello, Thanks for the query. What your daughter has, is Common Cold in which the airway tubes get coated with mucous and makes them thinner making the passage of air difficult. Asthalin is a bronchodilator (medication which will melt the mucus accumulated in the airway). This melted mucus comes out as a cough, vomiting or in motion. It is commonly used in congestion for children of that age.

It is fine as Yakult is a probiotic dairy product made by fermenting a mixture of skimmed milk with a special strain of the bacterium Lactobacillus casei Shirota. Prevent digestive disorders such as diarrhea and constipation. Help build immunity and reduce risk of infections.

Cold is self limited disease which get cured after some days. If nostrils are blocked, instill 1 to 2 drops of saline nasal drops in both nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day.

There is some miscommunication between you and your doctor. Iron supplement should not be given during fever. Give her paracetamol to bring down her fever and re consult your pediatrician.

Is asthalin syrup safe for my 7 months old baby girl? As she is having recurring cold but not suffering from asthma.

Is asthalin syrup safe for my 7 months old baby girl? As she is having recurring cold but not suffering from asthma.
Hello lybrate-user. Regards.All the medicines have their side effects. So its benefit versus risk ratio that prescribing doctor considers before prescribing a drug. Hope you have consulted a Doctor and giving asthalin on his advice. One more thing babies are prone to have bronchoconstriction even though they are not asthamatics. Hence asthalin can be useful in those cases. Hope it helps you.

Troubled Breathing - Can It Be a Sign of Asthma?

Pediatrician,
Troubled Breathing - Can It Be a Sign of Asthma?

Is your child getting exhausted after a bout of cough? Does he or she suffer from constant wheezing and tightness of the chest? Does your child feel drained out after climbing a flight of stairs? Do you know a child who always seems to run out of breath and cannot participate in school sports tournaments or play outside for a long time? The child could be suffering from asthma, which is a serious breathing problem. Most children are affected by asthma. Staying in a polluted city just makes the condition worse.

Asthma - Know the disease

  1. Asthma is a condition that causes inflammation of the airways, known as trachea and bronchioles.
  2. The muscles around the airways constrict and prevent the smooth flow of air.
  3. The lining of the bronchioles swell and block the airways.
  4. Asthma is mostly triggered by an allergic reaction.
  5. There is a difficulty in breathing out. Exhalation of air is often accompanied by a wheezing, that is, a whistling sound.
  6. There is a constant shortness of breath, feeling out of breath and gasping for air.
  7. There is an uncomfortable tightness in the chest, the feeling of not breathing in enough air.
  8. Coughing bouts in the middle of the night, that leave the child feeling exhausted and completely out of breath.

Causes of Asthma 

Asthma is mostly triggered by asthma allergens. These allergens are mostly pollens and animal fur.

  1. Exposure to pollution, such as dust and smoke
  2. Heredity
  3. Obesity
  4. History of heartburn, GERD and acid reflux
  5. Inflammation of sinus and airways
  6. History of bronchial disorders and pneumonia
  7. Viral infections
  8. Chronic rhinitis
  9. Low immunity causing constant cold and blockage of nose

Treatments of asthma

  1. A nebulizer that turns asthma medicine into a mist can then be inhaled easily
  2. An inhaler can be used to take in inhaled steroids into the lungs or a bronchodilutor
  3. Try and avoid asthma triggers and allergens as much as possible
  4. Avoid physical stress and heat
  5. Get sufficient rest of about 7-8 hours every day 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pulmonologist.

Take breast pump and express your milk and fed him by this expressed milk. It can be stored in room temp for 6 to 8 hrs in this prevailing temp. Also get your breast check with some mammologist or obstetrician.

Hi lybrate-user You need to consult a specialist in dentistry called Pedodontist. He will guide you for the best treatment. Please don't neglect the condition as it may prove to be very uncomfortable for your child in future. Dr. Fardin Adhikari specialises in pedodontia and has exclusive child dentistry practise in Pune. He is one of the finest doctors to treat kids in my knowledge. Hope this helps.
