Q.

Pseudo-ephedrine

Hi
My son is allergic to pseudo-ephedrine. He has the flu - runny and sore nose. What can I give him for flu symptoms that does not contain pseudo-ephedrine?
Thanks.

Your son only needs to take paracetamol syrup for fever when required. Popular paracetamol products are Panado and Calpol syrups. Keep his nose clear by using a saline nasal spray such as Sterimar twice daily.
