When does my child need to see a doctor if I suspect acute bronchitis?

The symptoms of bronchitis in children are more visible than in adults, like:

    • Fever and coughing are more exhaustive.
    • The patient becomes pale and perspires, has reddened eyes and sometimes, lips.

These phenomena all occur within the first few days. Upon assessing these symptoms, the caregiver child must immediately bring the child to a doctor for consultation.

If the child only exhibits coughing without any other symptoms, the aforementioned medication could also be used.

However, if coughing does not subside, then the child must see a doctor.
