It depends on what your sons symptoms are as to what would work best.
Because of his medication it is important you see a pharmacist so that they can recommend something safe and appropriate.

Generally nasal sprays to clear blocked sinuses are fine as are inhalations.
Acetominophen for body aches and temperature control is safe as are throat lozenges.
Avoid cough suppressants and oral nasal decongestants.
Hope this helps.
