Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Cough in children is due to various reasons..mostly viral in origin.Priton Cs is a cough suppresant given for dry noninfective cough and should be given thrice daily for atleast 5 days.But if your child is breathing heavily he might have wheeze.I think you need a doctor to examine him and prescribe medications.Never self medicate your child. Chericoff has the same medicines as piriton csHope this answers your query.Wishing your child a speedy recovery.Have a nice day.
