Hello Doctor, My 13 months old son, is having cough and congestion, which is making him cranky due to less sleep. At present I am giving him Antrim Tart 30 ( homeo pathy) since 1 day but there is no signs of improvement. We are travelling tomorrow ( 26 hours journey by train ) so I am looking some syrup or medication that can help my son. Thank you, XXXX
