Cough and cold that is upper respiratory tract infection is common in children till 5 yrs of age group.So proper care should be given at starting of cough and cold with decongestant ,and antibiotics after consulting pediatrician.If not taken care child will develop bronchopneumonia/ pneumonia.Always keep the child lie in later recombinant or lying in prone position for preventing aspiration of secretions into lungs
