Brief Answer:
Dosage mentioned.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

The dose for Duolin in a 9 months child would be half respule at a minimum interval of every 3-4 hours or as required.

You may give some antiallergic drops like cetirizine once daily for the runny nose.

It usually takes 5-7 days for such episodes to subside.
