Hello
It seems that with your baby is suffering from both lower and upper respiratory tract infection. There are so many viruses which can lead to this condition. Most of the viral infection resolve spontaneously. So what we need to manage conservatively. So continue nebulisation, steroid also have some role in treatment. Once infection subsides the condition will improve.
With regards
