Beta2 is salbutamol which is given when your child has wheezy chest. the dose 3ml twice a day is not enough for a child who is 9.5 kg. 0.5 ml fexofenadine is also very low . I think you stop beta2 for now and just use fexofenadine 2.5ml twice a day along with nasal drop (saline nose drop). No fever mean no severe infection, so no need to use cefpodoxime antibiotic. Visit hospital if u need further inquiry or if the child doesnt improve in few days.
