Cold, breathing issue and mild cough
Hi my daughter is 4 months old and suffering from cold , sneezing and mild cough. She sleeps well at night yet I am able to hear her breathing sound and in the day time I am hearing gur gur sound a lot. I have visited paed in our area and he has given phenergan syrup to given thrice (3 ml). Is it safe to give this syrup as I read it is a sedative and should not be given to children under 2 years of age. If so , what else can be done to treat her symptoms? Please advice. Thanks in advance. Note : Baby weight 6.2 kgs Breast fed and top up 120 ml formula milk once a day

Hello. Do not use Phenargan for kids as it is not safe and not recommended. As baby is just 4 months old with added sounds audible, it is advisable to get a direct examination for better management. In meantime, you can use Nasoclear nasal drop..1 drop in each nostril every 6th hourly for nose block if any.
Next Steps
watch for fever, breathing pattern.
