Hi Doc. I have a 2 yr 8month old son, About two weeks back our whole family were sick (runny nose, cough, fever). My son was on antibiotics and was given mucospect and damezin. Everything has cleared, no runny nose, cough or fever, but yesetrday when I got home from work his voice sounded really bad. Should I take him back to the Dr...what could be the cause? Thanking you in advance

Your son may be starting with a different illness such as croup, but it is more lukely that he has a problem with a post-nasal mucous drip as a result of his recent cold. Keep his nose as clear as possible by using a Sterimar Nasal Spray at least twice a day. If his voice does not return to normal after a few days or if he starts coughing and/or he develops any breathing difficulty he must be seen by a doctor.
