Sally Yeow: U may like to try Dr Ngiam @ International Child & Adolescent Clinic, Gleneagles Hosptial Annex Block, 64711077. My 2 kids have been seeing him since birth whenever they have cough & typically after the medication they recover within max 2 wks. Hope it’s helps 😉
Juliana Wong-Sim: And please check the diet too. My girl was about 2 years old then and was coughing persistently for 3 mths. Finished so many bottles of chlormine, Rhinathiol and Zyrtec. Fluimucil also didnt help much. Washed all the bed linen. One day, I realised that after she ate had nutella, her cough returned. I watched her diet and kept her away from nuts and choc, she recovered fully soon after.
She’s 3+ now and ok to nuts and choc.

Imelzarita Ismail: Hi! i sent my son to the clinic at BLK 263 Compassvale Street…Within 2-3 days, cough, fever or even week long diarrhea was cured.
Yeo Jiat Yee: you can try propolis from Yee Yan Sang. It really help. My girl is a premature, always having cough, since I have started the propolis. Seldom visit doctor.
Liya Lim: it could be ur home.. mayb ur child is allergic to pets, plants, carpet or soft toys..
Sioyan Ng: Control diet… don’t give too much cold stuff…but do not give bird’s nest….
Patricia Alvisse: Get rid of carpets, soft toys, change pillow case and bed sheet often.
Doc Dana E Srither: Yes, highly suspicious of allergy cough. Prospan is a good anti-allergy cough syrup. Avoid air-con, carpets, softtoys and pets.
Kelly Kc: The cause could be environmental as well as viral (caused by bacteria/virus). Environmentally, it could be chemicals in detergent residues in clothes, bed sheets, chemicals in room fragrances, perfumes. If it’s a viral cough, up his immunity with oregano leaves (made into tea or can be added to milk). Oregano leaves are natural antibodies (without side-effects) and can be found in organic shops.
Karen Chua: Hv your child check does he has sinus. Sinus will caused coughing too.
Mohana Sundary: It could be tonsil problems. Get an ENT specialist to check his
Chiou Lin: Does he has phlegm problem? If so try switching him from formula to fresh milk. My son been having cough/phlegm prob from oct 08 to oct 09! Ever since I switched him to fresh milk last oct, he doesn’t gimme much prob now. Pour e desired amt of fresh milk into his milk bottle & warm it up by putting e bottle into a cup of hot water. Ready in 5 mins time or more if u prefer warmer milk for him.
Shirley Chong: my son also hving tis on off coughing but i know tat his main problem is those sweet snacks and poor water intake.. i tried to control his intake of sugary stuff and keep him atleast 4-6 glass water now he’s fine 😉
