Q.

Cough

Hi Professor,

My 2.5 year old son has a cough which I don''t think is in his chest yet. He has no fever and eats and drinks well. He had his tonsils out in August last year. I think it could be allergy related and he has had it for about 2 weeks.

What can I give him for this? (I have Mucospect, Celestamine and Deselex in the medicine chest)

Thank you for your help.

I agree with you.Your sons cough is most probably due to an allergy.Try using thee Deselex and see if this makes a difference to his cough.He is probably coughing because of a post nasal drip caused by his nasal allergy.
