hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM ,
cough, cold, ear pain, headache and tiredness all might be because of the viral infection.
1 take plenty of water that will releive throat irritation
2 take tab paraetomol 650 mg if fever
3 take tab sinarest thrice day
4 you can use nasolcear nasal drops if nose is blocked
5 syrup grillinctus bm 5 ml thrice daily.
antibiotics are not necessary as it looks to be a viral infection,
if fever is not controlled, increasing symptoms then you might start antibiotics.
your son might have caught infection from you.
you have not mentioned age and weight of your son, medication varies with age and weight , mention them next time .
hope this will help you.
wishing you speedy recovery.
