A 27-year-old female asked:
3 year old fever, cough, sneeze red watery eyes, red throat, runny nose?

It happens: This sounds like a simple viral cold. Studies in the US found little help with these from OTC cough/cold preparations. The red throat may deserve testing for strep, that would need treatment. Otherwise supportive care/rest & good nutrition is all that is needed.
