In this age group viral infections are most common so no need for medications.....
Just use norsaline nasal drops 3 drops in nose three times daily and nebulize with normal saline 2.5ml twice daily for 3-5 days... Improve hygiene of baby

Thank you for asking. It is unlikely flu but simple upper respiratory infection. If your daughter does not have fever, is feeding well and breathing well then you do not need any medication for her. Simply use saline water drops to clear her nose but do not push saline in to nose, just the drops and clean what is coming out of nose with a wet wipe. Do not rub nose with dry tissues as this may cause abrasion of nose. Use petroleum jelly to keep skin moist. The symptoms should improve in three days. If not getting better or any additional symptoms develop as discussed above, then contact your doctor.


Pl do not use any cough Syrup for this young baby. If no fever and feeding well you can wait and watch. If in doubt see a doctor ( you don't loose anything ).

Salinase nasal drops as per nasal blockade


Please try to get consultation from doctor, one month old baby should get treatment after good exaination. Meanwhile steam inhalation and panadol drops (half droper).


Salam You need to keep her cover (protect her from direct exposure of cold)
and expose her to sunlight for at least 20mins and give her steaming twice
a day
