Thank you for your query,
As the the cold and cough is continuing you can continue the relent syrup as prescribed by your doctor.
Consult your Doctor again to examine your child and his respiratory system and for any modification in the medication if required.
If there is nose block, you can put nasal drops into nostrils and clear nose before feeding and before sleep.
Hope I have answered your query.

Your baby had fever with cold and cough which is mostly viral in nature and takes few days to settle.
This is very good that fever has subsided ,cough and cold will take few more days.
You can continue with syp relent for few more days.
Give plenty of fluids,lukewarm fluids will be soothing.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
