Brief Answer:
Trixil or Corico

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I would suggest Tixylix in the initial stages of cough specially due to viral infections.

If your son still has fever you can give him syrp Trixil 3 ml twice daily. If the fever has subsided you can give Corico (chlorphenaramine + phenylephrine) 2.5ml twice daily. Give either of them for not more than 4 days.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
