Hello doctor,

My 2-month-old baby girl child is suffering from cold for the past four days. There is a very little bit of coughing occasionally. There are some wheeziness from the nose also. She is moving her neck very often to both sides. I used Mucolite drops eight drops BD, Etolin PD syrup - 1.5 ml BD, and saline nasal drops. I used Sinarest AF drop for two days and stopped now. Please suggest to me is there any need for a diagnostic check up? What these symptoms could be?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I just want to know a few more information. Is your daughter feeding well? Does she sleep well? Did you notice any change in her breathing pattern like fast breathing? If she is feeding well, sleeps well and no breathing difficulty, then it is a simple common cold for which no medication is required at this age. The only thing is to keep the nostrils clean and open. I suggest normal saline nasal drops two drops every four hours for three days. Keep her head end a bit low while instilling nasal drops, and continue breast feeding.
