These days there's cough wave in young kids. Cough is dry or wet but more important classification is cough with or without breathlessness (or with fast breathing rate).
Cough with fast breathing rate in children is potentially dangerous and often parents miss the seriousness of it...
It requires urgent evaluation with a specialist Doctor.
When a child is having a high breathing rate, it is better to avoid solid food before doctor's advice. It can choke the baby and could be life-threatening.
Give her plenty of liquid but very slowly...
Nebulizers may or may not be effective...
Chances of deterioration is more in smaller children with unmeasured measures.
