Dear Mr Rahul

Thanks for posting your query here.

It seems your son is suffering from Respiratory tract infection, commonly causes by viruses.

I suspect your doctor may have felt need for using Asthalin during clinical examination. It is usually given in patients having wheezing to relieve difficulty in breathing.

Wheezing is sometimes found in patients having cough/cold and in that situation, it can be tried.

In summary, if needed, Asthalin syrup can be used in Paed
