8 month old with rattling coughHello
My 8 mnth old has been suffering with a rattling, mucousy cough for about 5/6 days. I'm pretty new to this and am a little unsure which remedy to prescribe. He coughs at various times throughout the day, has very little expectoration, finding it difficult to identify a trigger that sets him off. He's been sick only once after a coughing fit, he's still eating as normal and just waking once in the night around 2am . he is teething so hasn't been his usual happy self, still happy to sit and play by himself, maybe just a bit whingy at times. as he's unable to tell me how he feels its difficult to list any more symptons than a sporadic rattling cough (he's rattling/wheezing when he's breathing). I've given him ANTIM TART last few days (4 x 30c) but still he;s no better. Feeling pressure from family to take him to docs for anti biotics but I'm loathed to do so, would welcome some advice to shift this.
