Thanks for your query
Relax,you can give medicine as prescribed by your doctor.
Asthakind dx has cough suppressant,antiallergic and decongestant,
For fever you can give acetaminophen in prescribed doses if fever shoots above 100F.
Give plenty of fluids.,lukewarm ware will be soothing.
Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
