Hi XXXXXXX tharnipathy,
Thanks for asking. I understand your concern.
Actually Cherrycough also has content like cetrizine.. so it's necessary to maintainproper time space between two drug specially in children.). You can give Chericof after 8 hours of Cetrizine
Home care with hot milk with a pinch of turmeric ,dry ginger powder &sugar.. boiled together ...would help him.Nasivion pediatric nasal drops over the counter or light fomentation of forehead ,nose would relieve his nasal block ... &he would sleep.
In case he has fever or the symptoms are worse... consultation of hos pediatritian for antibiotic would be safe.
I hope thlat solves your problem.Any follow up query is welcome.
