Hello Doctor, This is regarding my daughter’s health. She is 11 months old, weighing around 8.5 kg and is generally active. From last 4 days, she is having cold and running nose problem. We have been giving T-minic drops and it has reduced but not completely. Still she has running nose and is causing her irritation at times. The breathing sound when she is sleeping makes us feel that she is not fully comfortable. Please suggest good and effective medicine without any adverse side effects to overcome this problem. We were suggested Relent by family members. Is Relent syrup a good option? Additional details: She is taking her foods normally and sleeps normally and is generally active except at times when she has irritation due to running nose. On second day she had fever and we gave two doses of Calpol syrup and there is no fever from third day. Thanks in advance. Regards, XXXX

Brief Answer: Relent syrup is good Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Yes, you can give Relent syrup, it does reduce the cold and also breaks down the mucus providing relief and help her breath easy. Also, give her steam inhalation with Eucalyptus oil in it. This will soothen her airways and provide relief from the irritation. Do consult a pediatrician to get her treated. Self medication is not advisable specially in a baby. Regards,
