Thank you doctor,
It is a wet cough with no fever. Apart from that, I am giving Monticope kid tablets. There is no wheezing.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
If there is no fever, then no need to worry. This could be viral and may take another week to resolve.
Since it is a wet cough, I do not think Levolin (Levosalbutamol) will help.
I suggest an expectorant syrup like Ascoril (Terbutaline) thrice daily and an anti-allergic for cough like Sinarest AF (combination of Phenylephrine hydrochloride and Chlorpheniramine maleate) twice daily for two weeks.
Also, I suggest saline nasal drops for preventing nose block. Nothing to worry as long as no fever, even if fever sets in, then I suggest Paracetamol to control fever.
Avoid citrus fruits and refrigerated food and drinks. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
