18 month child suffering from cold, cough and mild fever

Dear Doc, My son is having cold & cough since last 5 days. Fever is mild, comes and goes. My doctor advised to give calpol, asthalni and delcon syrup. There has not been much improvement. He is ok during the day but not able to sleep at night, wakes up many times and cries. He also does not take food, have to force-feed him, loss of appetite . I am worried. Please advise. Rakesh
