ENT Specialist 's  Response

He must be having post nasal drip following common cold, which is quite common after an attack of cold. Encourage your child to take plenty of warm water and use saline nasal drops 2 drops 3-4 times/day. If the symptoms does not relieve in couple of days please consult a good ENT specialist/a paediatrician.
