I have administered Zinnat antibiotic, Abidec and Emcap Paracetamol for 5days, still the cough and cold is still there and it affecting her breathing and sleep. Is it safe to put a baby mentholated balm into her nose.(this help her breath and sleep better). Please help. The cold started 9days ago. Thanks
Salt water drops in her nose will help. Antibiotics don't get rid of colds, Colds are caused by viruses. There is nothing to cure a virus. We have to wait it out. It usually takes around 10-14 days. If the baby is having trouble breathing from her lungs, and not because her nose is stuffed up, she needs to see a dr.
Gosh, all things considered, when it comes to a baby and my inability to know any history, I would steer you to your Dr for advice, but that's just me. Hope things are ok.
A two month old baby is nothing to experiment on. Call your doctor for advice, or go to an emergency room.
