hi there, cough and cold are quite common in a young child which is usually accompanied with fever. It would be wise to take the child to a pedieatrician and get his chest examined once to rule out any lower resp. tract infection. Meftal-p is helping to keep his fever in check so you may continue giving him that but along with it you may require to give him some anti histaminic decongestent and antibiotics .You can try giving him some steam vix vaporup massages on his chest to decrease as discomfort. Take care.
