Cough and cold not curing after 1 week
My 1 year old baby boy had fever, cough and cold since last 8 days, we had an online consultation with a pediatrician and he prescribed medicines, after 2 days fever subsided but cough and cold increased so we visited a nearby pediatrician and he changed his cough drops to syrup. We gave him all his medicines and his 5 days antibiotic course but still his cough and cold is not improving, what should we do? I'm really worried for my baby, please help.

More details are needed about cough and cold. Is there weight loss? How is the appetite? If baby is active and eating, no need to worry. Cough takes a long time sometimes. Consult a pediatrician directly by taking an appointment.
