Coughs and Colds Please Go Away

Our little prince Xye, had fever of 37.7 deg C last Thursday, the following day Friday he started coughing, then later that day sneezing and runny nose.

Three days passed dry cough was getting serious. It really made me worry because Xye never had coughs as intense as this one. The usual medicines that we give seem to be ineffective. I'm afraid that the situation will get worst and complications may arise.

Yesterday, I applied for a half day leave and brought Xye to his pediatrician. While waiting  at the clinic this little boy had so much fun running, climbing the stairs, and sometimes behaving himself on the bench when tired. Looks like he forgot about the coughs and colds that he had.


After one hour of waiting, his pediatrician had finally arrived. We had a fighting session first for him to lay down on the clinic's bed. He probably remembered that everytime we're in the clinic he got injections so as usual he cried and struggled to get away.

Xye probably had a strong viral infection, so aside from the usual medicines (salbutamol and decongestant /antihistamine) his doctor also prescribed an antibiotic.



Although Xye had completed all his immunization, he still was able to catch these annoying viruses that is because he's already attending toddler class and probably got exposed to virus infected kids in school. I hope he'll get better this week and we'll be able to attend class again.


One thing I like about Xye's pediatrician here in CDO, she keeps on giving us samples. Just like these vitamins, physiogel cleanser and atopiclair cream. Except for the vitamins (because he still have some) the cleanser and cream are very helpful in getting rid of the prickly heat (bungang singgot) that my son also had.

  1. We used to give our son oregano extract aside from the medicine prescribed by his pedia. This helps him release phlegm inside him.

    My son's pedia is also nice. Aside from product samples, she gives my son toys and other learning materials.

    CDO? really? I LOVE CDO FOREVER! haha.

    Everything's different talaga when they go to school na, that's why I make it a point that my daughter never misses her vitamins. Prevention is always better than cure. :)

  12. My kids have also been more sickly since they started preschool. They get cough and colds every month despite all the vitamins they're taking. :( Now they're also on Meptin(for asthma) and Xyzal(for allergic rhinitis). Your lucky your pedia gives you samples. :D Oh, and I hope Xye is feeling much better now.
