Hi, My 1.5 year old daughter has just developed cold ( running nose). Her nose is not blocked at the moment. I wanted to check which medicine should i give her and what dosage. She has had piriton cs or relent in the past. She does not have any cough. I have already started giving her steam inhalation. Please let me know at the earliest. Thanks.

Thanks for writing to us.
Your baby probably has upper respiratory tract infection , mostly viral. You can give relent as you mentioned around 2 ml two or three times daily.
Wishing you a speedy recovery
