Q.

cold / post-nasal drip

Hi doc my son of 9 months has a severe cold. His nose is runny &  he has now developed a cough. He doesn' t have fever though. He is battling to drink his bottle &  sleep as well. I am using illiadin drops &  Rhinex for kids. Is there any medication you can recommend to elliviate his sypmtoms?

Thank you

Stop the Iliadin and Rinex and only use Salex nose drops twice a day to clear his nose.

Hi

My son went through the same thing, best to take him to a doc as he needs an antibiotic and might have to be nebulised, after we got the right antibiotic and had him nebulised he came right in a week. The antibiotic was Klacid that helped.
