Brief Answer:
Better to give him intranasal spray containing steroids.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should give him following drugs.
1. Oral combination of antihistamine (levocetrizine or fexofenadine) and anti allergic (montelukast) drugs. Combination is better than individual drugs.
2. Intranasal spray containing steroids (fluticasone)
3. Steam inhalation 4-5 times a day.
4. Give him plenty of fluids orally.
He will mostly improve with all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your son. Thanks.
