Don't worry, if you take the above mentioned medications for short term (3 to 4) days, it won't have any effect on the baby.

dextromethorphan is not recommended for children, rather use Benadryl avoid all cold and sour foods, if the child is breast fed, the mother as well is supposed to avoid all cold and sour foods

I have consulted ent doctor for cough which comes after cold. It's been more than 1 month. I have taken antibiotics for 8 days and antihistamine for 15 days. Also cough syrup which contains cpm and codein for 10 days and another cough syrup which contains phenylephrine and dextromethorphan and cpm for 3 days. Along with this syrup ent doctor gave me antibiotics and predmet 8 mg tablet { methylprednisolone} for 5 days along with antihistamine. Still my dry cough won't going away. I have taken allergy test also which comes normal in report and chest xray also normal. There is no any other symptoms other than cough. Sometimes throat irritation comes. What can I do now? I am fed up with this cough.

Cough could be due to acid reflux.    take hot saline gargles atleast 5 - 6 times a day, it will help to clear the throat .  steam inhalation also helps to clear respiratory passages.  sprinkling eucalyptus oil on the clothes and pillows while sleeping will help.  elevating the upper body and head by propping up with 2 - 3 pillows at night will help to relieve post nasal drip which worsens dry cough.  hot soup infused with ginger, tulsi, pepper should be taken.  avoid cold food. Eat fresh homemade steaming hot food. take lots of fluids - water, soups, dal ka paani  take some proton pump inhibitors and antacid syrup.

Should we take cetirizine and paracetamol before getting covid19 vaccination done?
No need to take any medicines before taking vaccine. After taking vaccine, to reduce pain you can take paracetamol if developing fever, can continue paracetamol.

1. Do steam inhalation by steam inhaler 2-3 times daily with karvol plus inhalant capsule 2. Put otrivin nasal drop 1 drop thrice daily. 3. Take one tablet of levocetrizine (5mg) at bed time. 4. Drink lukewarm water/hot soup/herbal tea etc 5. If you have recurrent attack of cold you may be having sinusitis/allergic rhinitis 6. Take plain xray pns/ct scan of pns after consulting ent specialist to exclude sinusitis and take treatment accordingly 7. If sinusitis is excluded, it I could be due to allergic rhinitis, do an allergy test after consulting allergy specialist/immunologist to find out the cause of allergy and follow the treatment and advice accordingly.

You can. The point is why would you want to give medicine for cold. Cold is a viral infection which will go away on it’s own. Allow your child’s immunity to fight it. It will improve her resistance to such common infections. Use medication only if she is in genuine discomfort or developed a fever.
