Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

At present your child seems to have chest congestion and cough due to an episode of hyper reactive airway disease.

As the doctor has examined the child and prescribed medication, I advise you to continue the medication.

Watch for any rapid breathing and wheezing.

If there is no response in the congestion and cough within 3 to 5 days, consult again your Pediatrician for re evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query.

You fail to mention your son' age.Anyways both the medication given to your son is to control the allergic rhinitis and bronchitis.

Britanyl is a bronchodilator and will relief his cough and myteka satchet is to control the allergic rhinitis.If your son gets recurrent cold and cough then he should be given these medication .These could be considered quite mild medication with no major adverse effects.However if he fails to respond to it you might need to upgrade his medication .

Take care.
