Brief Answer:
Cough syrup

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Dry cough and cold in this season is most commonly due to virus.

Antibiotics do not have role in treating the viral infection but prevent any supper added bacterial infections. Do continue the advised medications.

In addition she can take Syp BENDADRYL DR 10 ml thrice daily. This will surely reduce the cough.

Hope, I answered your query.


Wish you good health.
