Brief Answer:
syp.benadryl can be taken

Detailed Answer:

Hello dear,welcome to healthcaremagic.

I understand your concern.
In my opinion as you have got upper respiratory tract infection for which antibiotics are prescribed.

The infection will be cleared but some airway hyperresponsiveness might be there leading to cough.

So nothing to worry.It will subside.Avoid chill items.

If throat irritation persists do warm salt water gargling.

Take syrup.benadryl expectorant cough syrup.

Nothing to worry.

Hope this satisfies your query.

Feel free to discuss further.

Best regards...Dr.srilatha
