Q.

Runny nose and a dry cough

Hi Doc,

Thank you for your advice, its always appreciated. My son of 15 months has a runny nose and a dry cough. The cough is more prevelant at night times. I''m giving him rinex and illiadin nose drops and salex drops as well. What can I give him for his dry cough and is the medication I''m giving him for the runny nose enough?
Thank You!

You are welcome. You are treating your son's runny nose very well. The Iliadin must only be used for 5 days.You can give your son a soothing natural cough medicine at night such as Cetralin for children. Ask your pharmacist.
