Hi Sandeep,

Thanks for posting your query.

It seems like your father has an acute viral fever. Please give him steam inhalation twice daily, he can also take Dolo 650mg three times a day, after food for next 2 days. Anti-allergics like Cetrizine will help in releiving the cold.

He should also take adequate rest. He may take a day off at work and rest at home. Let him continue to take Aciloc.

I wish him quick recovery.
