Childhood Diseases

Hello Prof. Thank you in advance for the advice - you are just awsome!!
My little girl who is a viral wheezer in winter is now 26 months old and am proud to say she has been wheeze free since September besides her chest infection she got with the i took her off the Seretide pump in December (her paed did say i could if she was doing well although i suspect she will go back in winter). My problem at the mo is that she has developed a cold and is sniffing. This morning she started coughing. I usually just use Sterrimar 3x per day, rub puma balm twice and maybe mucospect x2 (although i dont really find the mucospect works so well) but should i just do this process again or a friend recommended Coryx - what is your opinion on this paediatric syrup? It contains pseudoephadrine which i dont like the sound of although she is over two.
Also Demisin - your opnion? Thanks a million again - you helped raise my beautiful little girl...

Thanks for your kind words which are much appreciated.You are such an expert at dealing with your daughter's viral wheezing. At present she has a cold. Nothing is better or safer than the Sterimar to clear her post nasal drip with her cold.Mucospect helps to thin the mucous and makes it easier to be coughed up.I don't like giving children any pseudoephedrine-containing product. Oral decongestants do not usually work in any case. Just keep up with your safe approach.
