Hello Doctor, My daughter is 21 mths and weighs around 12.6 kg. she hs been having a cough for 3 days, more so at night. at times she is also getting feverish. she is generally active but can see she is a little down. has lost appetitie and brings out the food after coughing a few times. has been having disturbed sleeps due to the cough and then throws up. We are indians based in Singapore. I have with me T-minic syrup which works very well for her for colds and Alerid. Can i give her Alerid or would you prescribe anyother syrup to be bought from here. Thank you for your advice and service.

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
T-mimic and allerid are both antihistamines and work well in babies suffering from allergies and cold.
Give her nasal drops before going to sleep and some broncho dilator syrup thrice daily.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing your child a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
