  • Sore throat.
  • Running nose or Leaky nose.
  • Sneezing and cough.
  • Nasal congestion.
  • Headache and body pain.
  • Low grade fever (more likely in infants and young children).
  • Green or yellow sputum or nasal secretions suggest a secondary bacterial infections of the middle ear or sinusitis requiring treatment with antibiotics. Cold symptoms can last from two to 14 days, but two-thirds of people recover in a week. If symptoms occur often or last much longer than two weeks, with high fever, significantly swollen glands, severe facial pain in the sinuses, and a cough that produces mucus, it indicates a complication or more serious illness requiring a doctor's attention.

can a six yearold take a bath while he’s coughing?

Lilybeth_closa

All the more that you have to give bath to your 6 year old coughing child, a speedy warm bath is good enough to open skin pores, remember that the skn is the largest organ of the body, an excretory organ too. Warm bath would not only open skin pores but will also stimulate good blood circulation thus helps the condition of your coughing child because once you have good blood circulation, blood becomes active in transporting nutrients to & removing wastes from the cell. In alternative medicine particularly healing comes from inside going out, we have to clear the eliminative channels to rid off wastes because if the system is loaded with wastes it delays healing & or forms another illness by which the weak parts or organs becomes the first target..
