I have Febrex and AsthaKind at home, which was given to her two months ago when she had cold along with viral fever . Pls suggest if I can give one of these to her? Or should we wait it out till tomorrow and then give one of these?

Pediatrician, Surgery 's  Response
she is having common cold (upper respiratory tract infection). does she have fever, cough?
Why to give febrex (paracetamol) and asthakind (terbutaline) unnecessarily?? Time and again we advise you that do not think of each illness exactly same if there is some simillar illness in past and more importantly the treatment varies with each illness and are not always simillar.

i will advise you to give some steam inhalation (careful not to get scald/burn). show your little one to a pediatrician for better evaluation.
