Green discharge: in a child can indicate an infection which requires prescription treatment, and risk of ear infection at this stage is high. A visit to your pediatrician's office for evaluation would be wise.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Encourage clear fluids, vaporizer, tylenol for fever and agree to visit with pediatrician to check child in AM or to ER tonite if needed. Saline nasal spray for congestion would also be helpful.
