Brief Answer:
Normal saline nasal drops or steam inhalation are recommended.

Detailed Answer:
Hi & Welcome.
I can understand your concern for your beloved kid.

L-Montus syrup contains a combination Levocetirizine & Montelukast which is effective in the treatment of allergic conditions like rhinitis & cold associated with wheezing.
It is safe for long term use, you may please continue to use as prescribed by the pediatrician.

If you kid is having running nose without fever or cough or sore throat, you may give him/her normal saline nasal drops or steam inhalation or humidified air to relieve the symptoms.

Hope the answer given was helpful for you. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.
Wish your kid good health.

Dear Dr, Thanks for your response. In night, she had cough, stuffy nose, sneezing & runny nose. Can we start any other medicine like Coughstop, XXXXXXX juniour along with L-Montus??? No fever so far. She did not sleep properly in night. But active now. Mucus from nose looks mild yellow.

Brief Answer: XXXXXXX junior may be given

Detailed Answer:
Hi & Welcome.
Thanks for your reply.

If she had cough and did not sleep properly you may please give her XXXXXXX junior syrup. Generally it is safe, however it can cause drowsiness, dry mouth, & increased heart beat.

Hope this answers your query.

My daughter is 3 yrs old. She had traumatic injury of the ear with ear swab 12 days before. i.e.,on 20/7/11. There was little bleeding of the ear on the 1st day. then on the 3rd day mucoidal discharge was present. So visited ENT doctor(on 23/7/11) on whose advice -- (A)cephalexin syrup was given 250mg bd and (B)sofracort ear drops( which is framcetin + dexamethasone + gramicfin combination)2 drops bd. He put Ichthamol glycerine pack for the ear. Visited the doctor after one day gap. The mucus discharge was still there. (C)Ambroxol Hydrochloride syrup was prescribed 2.5ml bd. (started on 26/7/11). (D)Levocetirizine dihydrochloride syrup 2.5 ml once daily in the night was started on 27/7/11 as she was scratching in the night putting her finger inside the ear while sleeping. On 30/7/11 the discharge has reduced ,but still present. Doctor said the antibiotic should be changed as well as the ear drops. but to continue with Drugs (C)ambroxol and (D)levocetirizine syrups and he started with (E)Augmentin syrup bd and (F)Betnasol-N ear drops 2drops twice daily. My query is --Is my child undergoing the right treatment and will the medicines affect her adversely. or is there any alternative treatment for her condition.
