Brief Answer: New dolo cold. Salt water gargle, steam inhalation Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for using XXXXXXX I went through the query and understood your concern. if you are suffering from cold and cough then better is new dolo cold compared to Dolo 650 as this will help in better management of symptoms and prevention of cold and fever. Along with this you need to do salt water gargle and steam inhalation. These measures will help in faster recovery. If you are suffering from infection (usually presents with fever, thick mucoid sputum,throat pain) then you may require antibiotic treatment. Hope this information will help you. Feel free to ask if any related query, I will be glad to help you. Regards
