3 month old baby has RSV( respiratory Syncytial Viral)infection

Hello,
My 3 month old baby is coughing severely and is diagnosed with RSV.

In the past:she had acid reflux from past few weeks -(week 6)and has been spitting up a lot.

She was asked to take Sanicula 30 c for two days , but it has not made any difference.

Now she has this RSV infection and is getting worst.Any remedies or should I wait for her to outgrow this on her own like her pediatrician says.

Thanks,
A worried mom!!

If she is fine, I don't think that she needs any remedy at this time.

Dear Homeo.mzp,
I am not giving her any meds for reflux after Sanicula 30 c.it has worked and thank you very much.

I was worried for her Respitory Syncial Viral infection as she may have to be hospitalized and be on medications.

But I am not giving her any any meds homeo or allopathy unless really need to!!!

Thank you for your concern though :)
