Hi,

Usually, the viral infection is a common cause of congestion in the child.

Your child can be given prescribed the anti-allergic drug.

However nebulization of bronchodilator and steroid as prescribed given only if bronchoconstriction present.

So you can discuss that with his treating pediatrician. Your child's CBC also should be done for further workup.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
