Hi Murali,

If your child is having recurrent cold, he must be having either allergic problems or adenoid hypertrophy. You can try using saline nasal drops 2 drops 3times/day and give Syr. Actifed safely, these does not have side effects. Before that, please consult your ENT specialist and get a thorough examination done.
