Brief Answer: Relent or Sinarest Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing back. Sorry for the delay in my response. Cold is a symptom of an infection in the upper respiratory tract. Relent Syrp should help. If not you can give Sinarest Syrp 5 ml of it twice daily. Antibiotic given is good. For now there is no need for any antibiotic. Wish her a early recovery. Regards,
