11 month old - cough at night and chest congestion since 2 wks. Taking zyrtec (cetirizine) n terbutaline sulphate orally. Is Nebulisation needed?

11 month old fever of 102.5, very runny nose, and slight cough, also not sleeping well. Should I take him to see a doctor or can I treat this at home?

If your child takes fluids well enough to wet diapers every 6hrs & has happy moments, home care is ok for now. Declining fluid intake, increasing passivity or fussing, or that mommy button going off in your head, get it checked. ...Read more
