Thanks for the query
As cough is severe enough to disturb sleep and fever is also persisting give your child Augmentin Duo Syp. 5 ml thrice a day for 5 days, Syp. Timinic 5 ml thrice a day for 5 days, Syp. Zincris 5 ml once a day for 10 days. You have used antipyratic in a proper way( meftal-p when 102 and p-250 when 100 F). Use nasal saline drop 4 to five times a day for nasal blockage. Continue feeding and maintain proper hydration of the baby.
Watch for any respiratory difficulty, continuing high temp, decreased feeding or lethargy. If you notice any of these consult your doc immediately.
I hope this will help in management of your child's illness
Wish you and your family good health
With regards

You should add an Antibiotic like Co-amoxiclav plus mucolite is only going to increase cough. You should add a broncho-dilator like Salbutamol for help if there is chest congestion. Good luck.
