Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the administration of antihistamines is intended to relieve symptoms of colds or coughs caused by allergies. Antihistamines can also help reduce mucus production due to inflammation in the airways (whether caused by infection, allergies, or irritation).
First of all, you certainly have to find the cause of your cold. If indeed a cold is suspected due to an allergy, then actually the best therapy is to avoid allergens that trigger your allergies. Allergens can vary, for example dust mites, animal dandruffs, mold spores, flower pollen. The following are some things you can do:
Change your bed linen at least once a week
clean the bed, bolster pillow, carpet, sofa, or other objects that cannot be washed with a vacuum cleaner or vacuum cleaner
Avoid contact with pets in your home for a while, ask someone at home to bathe pets and clean the hairs that are scattered in your home.
Clean your house of mold that often grows in damp places in your house (usually in the corners of the house, behind cabinets, in the bathroom, etc.)
Avoid exposure to airway irritants as well as avoiding smoking or exposure to cigarette smoke, avoiding exposure to air pollution, avoiding exposure to certain chemicals that may be inhaled from the air
If indeed your condition does not improve, ask your parents to take you to a pediatrician (until the age of 18 you can still be examined by a pediatrician) for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
