Q.

Runny nose and cough

Dear Doc

My 6 month old daughter has a runny nose and cough. She seems less interested in her feeds since this morning.

I have given her Demazin syrup and Panado syrup (starting this evening). Is this the right thing to do?

Many thanks

You should be using infant saline nose drops as well.Use one drop in each of your baby's nostrils twice a day.
