Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Ventorlin is a bronchodilator and is given in children with cough when a wheeze is there in the chest. You can add an antiallergic cetrizine syrup along with these medicines and give your child a steam inhalation thrice daily to remove congestion and blocked nose.
