Cold and cough in 5 month old
My son 5 months 15 days old had temperature of 100.4 F. Took him to the doctor. He prescribed to take Calpol and Wikoryl drops for the cold. Had been giving wikoryl for 3 days. But his nose is blocked and he is not able to sleep at night even though his temperature is normal now. What can I do to soothe him?

If mild, avoid unnecessary meds and just give steam inhalations for cold and cough and decongestant nasal drops for nasal blockade or increased cough on lying down.
