Sonogram: It is basically a sonogram of the head. Sound waves pass through the soft spot (fontanelle), and show the brain structure. It is used to check for bleeding, cysts, or hydrocephalus (water on the brain). It avoids radiation which is used for ct or mri.

Shot is better: Oral polio vaccine has been phased out. It was associated with cases of transmission to other contacts, and occasionally caused polio in people with immune defects. The injectable vaccine is not a live virus, and cannot be spread to others.

Probably medication: Salbutamol and theophylline are both asthma medications, and often help with cough, but irritability is a common side effect. It could mean that the child is getting too much for his weight. A nebulizer might be better. Don't give any more medicine untgil you discuss it with your doctor.
