See below: You can give fever/pain medicines like Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen only. No other over the counter meds are recommended as safe or effective for kids under 4 yo. Prop or sit the child up, humidify the air and suction the nares and mouth with saline to clear mucous. This is supportive care and the most recommended plan.
