Thanks for writing to health care magic.

What is the respiratory rate of your baby?

Is he breathing fast?

Are there any chest retractions?

Is he feeding normally?

If your baby is drowsy and sleeping a lot then you should get back to your doctor for a review.

Take care.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

If there is no signs of bacterial infection and fever usually antibiotic (advent) is not required.

For cold you can give oral antihistamine drops like chlorpheniramine with the Pediatrician prescription.

For cough mucolytic oral drug like ambroxol is sufficient.

If there is any nose block, you can put saline nasal drops into nostril whenever required.

Use domstal in prescribed dose for vomitings.

Hope I have answered your query.
