Is it dangerous for children with upper respiratory tract infections to take medicine and need to go to the hospital?

Ask
Hello doctor! My nephew is only 3 months old, for the past 2 weeks he has had a cough and shortness of breath, wheezing as if there is phlegm in his throat. The baby went to the doctor, the doctor said he had an upper respiratory infection and gave him medicine to thin the mucus (light dose). I have been taking it for 3 days with no effect. Please ask the doctor, is it dangerous for children with upper respiratory tract infections to take medicine and need to go to the hospital? Thank you doctor.
