Just now I saw your question.
You go to the nearest pharmacy and get a bottle of normal saline nose drops and pediatric otrivin nasal drops.
You can put 1-2 drops in each nostril of normal saline drops ( if not available use Pediatric otrivin).
These drops you can repeat after 2 hrs.

You can give some antihistamine drops like Tminic drops 6 drop
Two times per day.
However show the baby to the pediatrician whenever possible to check the lungs.

God bless
Dr Uma
