Child suffering with severe cough, no improvement with ascoril, Taxim-O. Suggestion?

My 5 year old son is suffering from fever, cold, running nose and cough for 3 days. We were giving Calpol and Cetirizine . His fever is below 100 degrees now and no running nose however he s coughing a lot. The doctor prescribed ascoril along with Taxim-O and we have given him an hour back and do not see any improvement henceforth and he s still coughing frequently. Could you please suggest us?

hi joana.. thanks for ur query..

from the history it seems your child is having viral infection in which running nose is very common,
ascoril and taxim-o are proper medicines. as you know antibiotics take some time to act..
but for now to control coughing NEBULIZER must be applied atleast twice daily for instant relief,
n avoid cetrizine as it makes the secretions in lungs thick and worsen the cough..
i hope this will help you.. if u have anyother doubts or followup queries feel free to discuss with me..
i wish him a speedy recovery.
