Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
I understand your concern.
Since he has been prescribed seroflu inhalar your doctor must be treating him for hyper responsive airway disease.

There is relief in symptoms of cold with inhalational corticosteroid .

If such patient comes to my clinic I would add decongestant with antiallergic like syp tminic 7ml thrice a day.for couple of days.

Also give him warm fluids like lemon tea,vegetable soup as it will be soothing.

In case symptoms persist get him examined by pediatrician.

Hope I have answered your query.
In case you have any further query I would be glad to help.

Wishing your child good health.

God bless...
