Hello,

It could be a simple respiratory tract infection. Generally, it will settle in four to five days.

If symptoms persist or if there is a fever, antibiotics may be started. Consult a pediatrician and he will direct you accordingly.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
