Brief Answer:
examination by doctor is a must.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Can understand your concerns.

By what you quote it seems that your child is suffering from wheeze associated lower respiratory tract infection.
An x ray chest should be done.
If I were your treating doctor, then I would have given
-syrup cefpodoxime (5ml=50 mg) 4 ml three times a day for 3 days
- cough syrup for 3 days
- nebulization with duolin respule should be given.
However, since child has severe cough and wheezing, i suggest you to get the child examined by a doctor.
I hope this will help you.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Chericof or cheston CS syrup

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome once again.
You can use cough syrups like Chericof, cheston CS, asthakind syrup.
Duolin respules should be used single respule.
However, since these are prescription drugs, I advice you to meet the local doctor to confirm the diagnosis and for dosage of drugs.
If there is no improvement in symptoms or there is increase in respiratory distress or fast breathing, then you should visit a doctor immediately.
Also if symptoms persist an x ray chest should be done.
Wishing your child good health.
Take care.
