Pediatrician, Cardiology Dr. Pradeep Kumar's  Response
If there is no improvement with proper doses of allegra and ventrolin, then involvement of lower respiratory tract must be ruled out. She may need antibiotic or nebulisationas condition is not improving.
So I would suggest you to consult your doctor for proper clinical and laboratory evaluation and to see whether any antibiotic or nebulisation is needed or not.

good evening, the cough at night times following cold is due to post nasal drip. so to control his cold and running nose u can try syp sinarest af- arround 3.5ml thrice a day, for the cough u can go ahead with ventrolin. clear his blocked nose with saline nasal drops. he may require a course of antibiotics if the symptoms are not controlled, so i suggest u to kindly review with ur doctor.
