Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to health care magic.
You can Nyquil children's formulation which contains chlorpheniramine and dextromethorphan which canbe given to kids at this age.
Antihistamines do have sedative effect which means you should keep him indoors.
If not improving consult your doctor.
