My 8 months old son has cold and cough , doctor prescribed to use Piriton cs(1.5 ml twice a day) and Aziwok(2 ml once a day) for 5 days and nebulization for 2 days (twice a day). But after 5 days also I m not seeing any improvement in his health condition. He still has cold and cough and does not sleep in the night. Please suggest what should we consider. Thanks, Pradeep

Continue using nebulization for your child regularly for at least 4-5 days more. It will be the safest and most effective relief for him. Also put saline nasal drops in his nose, it will help him in sleeping better at night.
