Coughs In Babies And Children Causes Symptoms And Treatment
When your baby or toddler has a cough, it can be very distressing for you both. Whether it’s a tiny tickle in your little one’s throat, or a cough keeping the family up at night, it’s good to know what may be causing it and what to do about it. A cough in children is their body’s way of reacting to irritation in the airways. The cough itself is not necessarily a bad thing – it is a normal response by the body to something that it doesn’t want there, such as mucus (phlegm) or a foreign object. Coughing is an important reflex because it helps to remove the irritant from the windpipe.
