Dear doctor, my son is one year and two months old. He has fever and cough for the last 4-5 days. His pediatrician prescribed asthakind dx syrup. But nowhere in the bottle/cover its mentioned that its for pediatric use. And on the cover its also mentioned that its sugar free. I just want to confirm whether i can give this syrup to my this much small kid?

Hi
Thanks for your query
Relax,you can give medicine as prescribed by your doctor.
Asthakind dx has cough suppressant,antiallergic and decongestant,
For fever you can give acetaminophen in prescribed doses if fever shoots above 100F.
Give plenty of fluids.,lukewarm ware will be soothing.
Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
