Usually observation: Depending on the age, observation and symptomatic treatment is all that is needed. Suctioning of the nose to keep the nostrils open is key. If the air is dry, a cool mist humidifier may be of benefit. Observe for fever or other signs of infection and make sure the babe is warm, clean and dry and loved a lot. If concerned, see your pcp. Otc meds should only be used with advice of pcp.
