Dear R.k,

Thanks for your query.

Yes, you may use this till tomorrow. But he probably has symptoms and accompanying symptoms he may need some basic investigations like routine complete blood count and Chest X-ray. A proper antibiotics (any penicillin group is preferred), an antihistaminic and Cough syrup can be prescribed to him after the initial investigation.

Consult his pediatrician at the earliest.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Best Wishes,
