Hi Nitesh Pant,
Thank you for your query,
Continue the medication for cold and cough as advised by your Pediatrician.
For cold you can give oral decongestant like chloepheniramine in prescribed dose.
CBC showing hemoglobin is low and it is suggestive of anemia and the platelet count is slightly on higher side, may be an inflammatory response.
Anemia can be treated by iron and vitamin drops prescriprtion after treating the present infection.
So consult your Pediatrician for review and any treatment modification.
Hope I have answered your query.
