  1. Hello and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.Cough can be due to several causes like viral and bacterial infections,allergies.I suggest that you give baby warm milk with a pinch of turmeric. Give a teaspoon of honey daily. Keep a humidifier in room.The mist will help in loosening mucus.Give warm liquids like soup. If cough persists he wil need examination and may be tests like Xray chest and blood counts.I hope this helps.Take care and regards!
