Your child is probably suffering from respiratory infection. Antibiotics need to be given for complete duration. Calpol
only reduces fever. It also has side effects like gastritis
leading on to vomiting
. It is bad for liver
so don't give calpol unnecessarily. Use calpol only when there is fever.
COugh and chest congestion will be there even for a week. No need to worry as long as there is no fever or fast breathing. Don't worry she will be fine.
