Hi Rupali,

As your daughter is already an asthma patient, you need to take extra precautions to avoid cold and cough.
Now she is having fever means there is associated infection may be lung infection[as there is cold and cough]. Giving only ibugesic syrup which is pain killer, will not help.
We need to find out the cause for fever and treat the cause [ i.e lung infection- bacterial/viral].
Cold and cough in asthma patient tend to trigger the asthma attack.
So take extra precaution.
Start steam inhalation. You can continue Cypon syrup which is decongestant.
I would still suggest consult pediatrician, to treat cause for fever and prevent imminent asthma attack.

I would recommend following things to avoid asthma related problem.
Good hygiene can decrease viral infections such as colds. Prevent the spread of cold viruses by making sure you and your family members wash your hands regularly.
Another way to protect yourself is to get a flu vaccine every year. Like colds, the flu is caused by a virus and can trigger asthma problems.

Take care.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
