dry cough for 23 month old child

my son is 23 months old. he had walking pnuemonia couple of months and he was treated for that with antibiotics and albuterol(inhaler) and in the span of 2 months he had 2 colds and he is having this dry cough since then. though the cough is not heavy
it is more like a dry cough as if there is thin layer of mucus in his throat and irritating him and coughing to clear it up. when we met his pediatrician she told it could be seasonal allergy and prescribed him zyrtec but still he is coughing .the cough is not through out the day ,he will cough for couple of hours but other wise he is active.
for the past 2 days i noticed he coughs when i take him outside and when he wakes up in the morning(on the bed itself).
please suggest me a medicine considering his age and i am staying in US.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
since antibiotic use--have you started anti candida diet and probiotic use.?...will see some symptomology change after start of mentioned....--yet stil underlying predisostion need be addressed...

John Stanton last decade
my son has been a very healthy boy since birth with no complications.he had flu in the month of january 06 and got treated with anti biotic,symptoms went away. In the month of february as i mentioned he suffered from walking pnuemonia and got treated with anti biotics.he has never been on any specific diet and now he is not on any anti biotic .right now he is on zyrtec(anti histamine).
i am not sure what you meant when you mentioned anti candida diet and probiotic use
prapurna last decade
what exact symptoms son have occurring at this time?please explain

probiotic-is used to put back healthy bacteria good for proper function of body--antibiotic kills all bacteria in body..even good ..

candida is yeast (fungi) that propagates when bacteria is killed off--to pint of becoming toxic to body...much symptomology after antibiotic use repeated--is characterized by ths toxic effect--anti candida diet is aime at not feedng candida yeast --an probiotic establishes go bacteia--tus aim to establish balance...

for how many days i should have my son on this medicine?
he is a vegetarian and his main diet consists of white rice and full fat milk. do you recommend any change to his diet other than restricting acidic foods.
truely appreciate your help
prapurna last decade
only one dose to be taken in morninmg on empty stomach--1 hour before eatin---no repetitin at l-til accesss..

what is source of full fat milk?
John Stanton last decade
cow's milk.
How many days should I continue giving this one dose every day in the morning on an empty stomoch?
prapurna last decade
only one day--one time and report back

NO sweets at all or acids as mentioned

cow's milk is of questionable quality--hormones/antibitics---unless you use quality organic--------better goats-natural homogonized--assimlated better than cow's milk
-- check into www.mtcapra.com --caprotein--organic goat milk/whey protein--also has probiotic culture...
John Stanton last decade
thanks for your replies. and will report back to you about his symptoms after giving him the dosage.

hi john,
as u suggested i gave him a single dose(2 pellets) of suphur 30c.. his cough subsided but he started sneezing since yesterday though not heavy but frequently, as i am not sure if it is a normal cold or sneezing related to cough.
your help would be appreciated.
prapurna last decade

what time of day/night sneezing started?

how often sneezing?contiuous?whatsem trigger?

following diet requirements?
John Stanton last decade
yes,following diet requirements.
he had light symptoms of stomach virus(vomiting only on thursday night) and slight diarrhea .i gave suphur 30c on sunday no cough since then.he was sneezing since yesterday afternoon around 12 0clock.
sneezing is not continous but frequent .since morning he is having runny nose(slimy and clear liquid as of now).last time he had sneezing was when he had cold(last week of march).
prapurna last decade
no tretament of this discharge..nothing at all---no herbs ;;overcounter meds.we will intervene only homoeopathically ---only if need be...

how has his sleepbeen? whatyou notice concerning his demeanor?
John Stanton last decade
he is having good amount of sleep with out any disturbance during nights.
he has been a little lethargic, lazy and eating less.
prapurna last decade
eating--how much less?

how does this lethargic-ness copare as to before sulph?
John Stanton last decade
he is eating half the quantity he used to eat before. but i think thats not because of sulphur.i feel its because of his stomach virus. he was eating less before i gave him sulphur.he is less lethargic than he was before giving him suphur.
