Thank you posting your query on “Ask the Doctor”
It’s common to have cold and flu in Infants. The Doctor might might have suggested half a tablet of Septran suspecting infection. Antibiotics are not always warranted in cold and flu. Symptomatic treatment is sufficient. Doctor might have also suggested anti-cold syrup for baby.
It is always better to show patient to qualified Doctor or Paediatrician and then only take medicines.
Hope this helps.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
