hi welcome to Health Care Magic,
basically its an alergic problem. if he is better can send him to the day care. but its better you send him after he gets well completely. jus symptomatic treatment with cough syrups is good enough for him.

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, bhronchitis is a allergic reaction of lungs. there is no role of antibiotic in such type of condition. you should give him asthelin syp or nebulization with asthelin as per advise of your doc. give him antiallergic drug also. do not worry more then 95% of oxygen saturation considered as normal.
