Bring her to Dr: Venteze contains salbutamol/albuterol, which is a powerful medication that dilates/opens up the air passages in the lungs. It may be appropriate to use in this situation but a 2 month old should be seen for a bad cough that is severe enough to require Venteze. He may need antibiotics or antiviral medications (if it's the flu) or the Dr may recommend an alternative to Venteze.
