  1. Hi and welcome to Medimetry.The symptoms experienced by your child can be seen in many conditions like allergic rhinitis,chronic sinusitis,enlarged adenoids,gastroesophageal reflux disease,asthma,post nasal drip.Steam inhalation to clear the secretions and cough lozenges for cough may help.He may take warm water and avoid cold water.Take a nutritious diet rich in vitamins and minerals especially vitamin C like sweet lime,lemon,oranges,amla to build up immunity against cold.The specific treatment will depend on the cause.Allergic rhinitis and sinusitis will respond to decongestants.For gastroesophageal reflux disease antacids will help.An ENT examination is must for confirming the cause.Keep me posted on your child's health.Take care and good day!
