I hv 8 month old baby girl. she has dry cough in the early mornings only, bcoz @night we turn on A/C and sleep. is there any remedy for this? she doesn't hv fever. she eats normal. she's active too.Jul 30, 2013
Dr. Jinan Usta Family Medicine
the A/c may cause irritative cough because it may dry up the air in the room which will then irritate nose and throat. It is better to avoid setting the A/C to low temperature and keep the temperature in the room around 25 degrees celsius. cough syrup for dry cough are not recommended at this age.

for a so little babby switch off the ac the baby may have cold induced bronchitis or irritation of the upper airway
