Dear Patient,

Coughing takes a couple of weeks to settle.
You can give him 1 tsp of syrup Zyrtec before bedtime ONLY for one week. Nebulize with 1cc Atom/Atrovent in 1cc saline up to three times a day. Avoid cold and sour foods. Make sure the child isn’t allergic to dust or any animal feathers/hair causing these issues. If the problem persists, consult with a paediatric in the clinic.
