Hello and thanks for writing in at HCM
I am a General Physician and read your mail in detail. Firstly I want to know that is the cough dry or not.
If their is no fever, no yellow colored sputum or no breathlessness than there is no need of more course of antibiotic.
The now may be viral or some allergic related cough.
Give your child steam inhalation and use vicks vapor-ab locally and try to expel out the sputum as much as you can. Only this will help in curing from cough. Also protect your child from dirt or pollans etc which can cause increase in cough.
If cough is not dry than along with steam inhalation you can give Chericof one TSF twice a day.
Hope you have got all your answer
Best Wishes
