Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

I understand your concern. Some advice that I can give you are:

1) Use saline and suction.
2) Use Calpol 250mg for the fever.
3) Use a humidifier or a cool-mist vaporizer.
4) Elevate your child's head.
5) Use oral rehydration therapy if vomiting continue.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have any other question Ill be glad to help.

Thank you for the query.

Take care

I son 1yr 7month old was having mild fever for 2-3 days. We gave him Crocin on SOS basis. Earlier he was not showing any signs of cough or cold. Now there is no fever since 2 days but he seems to be a bit dull and though he is not coughing when he sleeps he seems to be snoring. Soon after waking up his voice also seems to be bit heavy. When he cries nose starts running. What is the probable reason? Which medicine can be provided to him e.g. T-minic or Relent plus
