It's normal for children to get 8 or more colds in a year. Because colds are caused by viruses, not bacteria, antibiotics don't help. Here are simple steps to help your child who has a cough or cold.
If they are hot/feverish: Increase the amount of fluid your child normally drinks. Lower their temperature with paracetamol or ibuprofen medicine which has doses for children.
For coughs: Coughing serves a purpose, it helps clear phlegm and mucus. Give the child plenty of warm clear fluids to drink.
To help with breathing: Plain saline nose drops /
sprays can help with blocked noses.
