Brief Answer: Must be correct most of the times Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to healthcare magic. Cold attacks are common in kids below 3 years. Mostly it is viral , unless fever and symptoms do not improve in few days we do not give antibiotics even if there is chest congestion . Your doctor must have done rightly so. Unnecessary antibiotics would do more harm than good. You can continue treatment as advised by your doctor safely. Wishing your kid speedy recovery. Regards Dr Arun
