A 25-year-old female asked:

My baby(5 weeks old) has runny stool but no fever or vomiting, should i take her to the doctor or is it possibly a side effect of antibiotic cream she was prescribed?

Runny nose: This symptom is unlikely to be due to an antibiotic cream. It is most likely a viral illness, but monitor for fever and other symptoms that would indicate further medical attention is indicated.
