Your child is having cold and and cough with nose block and difficulty in breathing according to your history of complaints. To relieve nose blockade give saline naslal drops into each nostril and clean any mucus present. For cough you can continue the cough syrup in prescribed dosage. If still breathing difficulty continues consult children specialist
