WE CANT GIVE MEDICINES TO CHILD TILL 2 YEARS
UNLESS DIRE EMERGENCY OCCURS
PIRITON IS THE ONLY MEDICINE WHICH CAN BE GIVEN BELOW 2 YEARS OF CHILDREN
ADVISE
YOU CAN USE NEOSPORIN H EYE OINTMENT IN BOTH NOSTRILS MORNING EVENING
PUT SALINE WATER IN NOSE 2 DROPS MORNING AND EVENING
YOU CAN GIVE ALLEGRA 30 MGM 1/2 TSF BD
AND SYP PIRITON 1/3 TSF NIGHT

SALINE NEMBULISATION IS BEST
NO NEED TO ADD ANY MEDICINE IN INHALER
YOU CAN REPEAT THIS COMBINATION ANY NUMBER OF TIMES
COURSE 5 TO 7 DAYS
