my son is dry coughing after pneumonia
My son has got pneumonia on middle of Jan.
Doctor gave him two antibiotics one after the other.
Since then four x-ray report showed that all pneumonia was gone after two weeks.

But after that he is dry coughing since February First week which is almost 4 weeks now.

He coughs only during day time. But when he sleeps there is no coughing.

Please let me know.

Hi, this may be due to residual bronchitis or allergy. In consultation with doctor please try some antihistaminc preparation(or steroids) along with bronchodilators for a week or so. Please keep the room humid too. Cough usually takes 4-6 weeks to go.

Codiene linctus along with honey based lozenges could prove to be helpful too but only after consultation with doctor.
