Pediatrician 's  Response
Your baby is just 45 days old. Wikoryl contains chlorphenaramine maleate which is not advised for children less than 6 months of age. Moreover it can cause excessive sedation in infants. It is important at this stage to check his progress and assess whether there has been any improvement in the last 6 days. If the symptoms are worsening, do get him reviewed at the earliest.
Wishing your son a speedy recovery.
