Brief Answer:
Do not use Sinarest - it can cause high heart rate

Detailed Answer:
Hi...I SUGGEST YOU NOT TO USE SINAREST AS THERE IS A RISK OF HIGH HEART RATE AND SUPRA VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA.

Cough and cold are viral 95% of the times in children. For cold you can use anti-allergics like cetirizine and for nose block, saline nasal decongestants will do.

Paracetamol can be given in the dose of 15mg/kg/dose (max ceiling dose 500mg), that too only if fever is more than 100F. I suggest not using combination medicines for fever, especially with Paracetamol.

For cold you can use Cetrizine at 0.25mg/kg/doses.

For nasal block, plain saline nasal drops will do, every to relive nasal congestion.
