Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi Arif Bhai,

Thank you for query.

Myteka and Zatofen are medicines for asthma and from what you describe I do not think that these are needed for your child. In cough following flu or viral infection a simple cough syrup or decongestant syrup should do. It shall be better if you get your child re-examined and find if the medicines mentioned by you are indeed required.

I hope I have answered your query to your saisfaction.

Wishing your child all the best..
