Thanks for your query.

By your description your son is suffering from Upper Respiratory Tract Infection which probably has involved his ears. Infection of the middle ear/s is very painful. I hope the doctor in the hospital examined his ears by an otoscope to look at the ear drum which alone can provide information of middle ear infection. Sedative would certainly make him sleepy for a while.

Conitnue giving T-minic and steam inhalation for some relief and get the ears examined to rule out middle ear infection.

I hope I have responded to your query to your satisfaction. Please revert back if any clarification is required.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
