Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing to us.

Your child is had symptoms of respiratory infection which is mostly viral in nature and settles in few days.

This is good that fever has settled now.

Regarding running nose and cough it will take couple of days to settle.

Physical examination will be required to look for type of cough.

In case such patient will come to my clinic and on examination it is dry cough I will prescribe combination of dextromethorphan(cough suppresant) and chlorphenaramine (antiallergic) like XXXXXXX junior 1 tsf 3 times a day.

-Also give plenty of fluids,warm fluids will be soothing
-Give steam inhalation for 5 to 10 minutes.

In case symptoms persist,I suggest you to get him examined by pediatrician as physical examination will be required for further mNAGEMENT.

Wishing your baby good health.

God bless..

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX .

Thanks again.

This is good that his symptoms have settled now.

Regarding secretions they take few days.

For this I suggest you to continue with steam inhalation as this helps loosening secretions.

Also continue with warm fluids,lemon tea will also be good.

Decrease intake of milk for couple of days.

As small children are not able to take out sputum and they swallow it so it will slowly come out with vomiting or with stools

Wishing him speedy recovery.

God bless..
