Suggest treatment for persistent cough and cold

Hello Doctor. I have a 4 year old daughter who seems to be down with cough and cold almost once every month. I am really very frustrated with it. She cant eat ice creams, swim, drink a cold drink. We are living in a place with high pollen concentration and I guess this is what is leading to her illness. Which is the best medicine for nebulization that I can use for her and what dosage. I am also giving her an anti histamine Aerius. How long can I give her the anti histamine for? Thanks & Regards

in areas with high pollen concentration, chances of development of Bronchial Asthma is more. Nebulize your child with Asthalin solution 4-6 hourly, if she has acute symptoms, nebulize her with Duolin and Budecort. Consult a pediatrician,as the child might have to be put on MDI inhaler for Asthma. Anti histaminic will give her symptomatic relief for some time, continue giving her syp Aerius along with nebulization. desloratidine(aerius) has not been seen to have serious side effects on prolonged use.
