Hi Joanne

Glad to hear your LB is doing better, I stock up on two cough syrups at home, Prospan (dry our hard coughs) and Bissolvin (for chesty, phlegmy coughs).

Both can be used from newborn to older kids, even we as adults use it.

For sore throat, I also keep stock at home of the medicated throat lollies but only if your child knows how to suck them, alternate, is honey if it's safe for him to use, half a teaspoon for them to suck on, natural anti-inflammatory.

Just my stock pile at home, hope he is fully recovered soon, all the best.

I also couldn't understand it, my husband took him to the doctor as I couldn't leave work at that stage and our regular doctor wasn't available. Luckily he is now all better.

Sorry for the late response, that's strange that doc put him on antibiotics for a fever, fever is usually viral and an antibiotic will definitely not help with that. But let's not question that.

You get those suckers for sore throats but not too sure if they are ok for an 8 month old. When my lg had foot and mouth disease we were prescribed phargel it's used for ulcers in the mouth and soothed her throat as they were right at the back of her throat. We used it recently for her sore throat as well although she is 3 now, it has honey like properties.

Maybe check with your pharmacist, if they could possibly recommend something! Hope he feels better!

The doctor said it is due to teething? So I don't know. The coughing only started yesterday. He is 8 months old.
I think he gave the antibiotics since he had a high fever.

Hi Moomies,

My LB has a cough and I suspect a very sore throat. We had him at the doctor last week Thursday since he has a high fever. The doctor prescribed antibiotics and some cough syrup (betaflam and sterinom) not sure of the spelling.

What can I give him for the sore throat? Any suggestions?
