Hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!!
You can take your child to the paediatrician since you are saying he has less left hand movement because of asphyxia earlier just make sure that the excessive salivation is not due to facial paralysis which causes drooling excessively which can seem like excessive salivation, if it is excessive salivation the child can be given anticholinergics.
