hello and welcome to health care magic,

I am Dr Sriram Nathan an ENT surgeon and I will try to help you out with your problem.

I see that the doctor has prescribed you with paracetamol syrup or calpol and the mohkind will most probably be an antibiotic syrup which is sufficient for the time being.

Just make sure that she also has an antihistamine medication like levocetrizine or cetrizine or chlorpheniramine maleate (look into the chemical constituent of the syrups). If not you may ask your doctor to add these too.

complete the course as given by the doctor and I am sure your daughter will get better.

Give only warm water and fluids and avoid head bath and also try steam inhalation

hope she gets well soon
