Hello,

Recurrent cold and chest congestion in children are mostly due allergic rhinitis and asthma. So better to consult a pediatrician, and get done a clinical examination of the respiratory system. He will need inhaled bronchodilators (formoterol or salmeterol), an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) (budesonide or fluticasone). Combination of antihistamine (levocetrizine or fexofenadine) and anti-allergic (montelukast) is also beneficial. Intranasal steroid (fluticasone) spray is also helpful for cold. Don't worry, he will be alright with all these.


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