Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.

After reading your baby clinical history it appears that he is most probably having upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) going to lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) .

If I were his treating Doctor for this case , I would advice
1) Syrup Xyzal M 3ml twice
2) Syrup combiflam 3ml thrice
3) Syrup azee 3ml once
continue steam with vicks thrice daily . Use complete treatment plan for 7 days .

He will get relief .

You will need prescription for medication .

Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Regards.
