Rhinitis: I recommend an evaluation by an Otolaryngologist for diagnosis and treatment advice. You are probably dealing with vasomotor or perennial rhinitis which is a nonallergic disorder. However careful evaluation can be done to look for paranasal sinusitis or nasal polyps which are other possibilities.

Multi-layer dressing: Use sterile dressing and antibiotic ointment over the exposed skin to prevent infection and promote healing. Use a second layer of dressing or gauze. In between the first and second layer apply a lubricant such as vaseline or petroleum jelly. Secure those layers with a roll gauze and tape. All of this goes under your sock and should prevent pain when walking.

No meds: Medications have not been proven successful at this age and pediatricians do not recommend any over the counter cough and cold medicines for kids under 6 years. For babies of this age a nasal aspirator can help remove the thick mucus in their noses- the blue bulb syringe can do the same. Humidification may also help. Most importantly keep them hydrated- increase the frequency of breastfeeding.

Sounds like viral: Although, it does sound like a viral infection, 3 days of fever is the most concerning factor. Vomiting in the 3 year old is not good either as it may cause dehydration along with fever. I'd take him to the nearest er for a check up.

Wrong dose: The way you are taking the zithromax is not the dosing for chlamydia - for that you need to take 4 250mg tablets at once. That's it. Call your doctor and check out why they prescribed it the way you are taking it.
