Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You should avoid much pepper as that can stimulate coughing more. He can do steam inhalation for relief of cough. Keep him warm. Avoid anything cold for him to eat or drink. For cough he can take cough suppressant under medical advice by your Doctor. Follow your Doctor's orders.

Hi Venkyan,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Thanks for the query

Your son is suffering from Acute Respiratory tract infection. He is in a recovery phase. and it is not a good idea to give him milk or pepper. It may aggravate the condition. Foracort is a Steroid it reduces the inflammation in the respiratory tract. Asthalin is the bronchodilator which dilates the respiratory tract. Along with that a course of antibiotics will help to stop the infection. Just give him less oily and less spicy soft food for a week.

Take care.

Wish you good health.

The best option is to complete the course of allopathic medicine in acute stage if already started. To check recurrance use swamla to increase immunity of body specially upper respiratory tract.
