What meds can i give a two year old for stuffy nose/runny nose. And can i give it with a fever reducer at the same time/??

Lots of things

There are a variety of homeopathic meds that are safe and helpful in two year olds with colds. See your local health food store or Whole Foods. Vicks vapor rub is old, tried and true, and helpful with nasal congestion. Saline drops in the nose followed by suction can help. Yes, you can give fever reducer too. However, if you're looking for cold meds like adults use (nyquil etc.), forget it.

Insurance should not be the primary concern, your two year old should be. I am sure that you get groceries and gas even though your insurance does not cover these items. Sometimes you can negotiate in advance for a cash price.

What do you recommend for a 7 year old with stuffy nose?

Depends

School-age_kids_health
If this is a new acute event, saline nose drops during the daytime and running humidifier while sleeping should help. However, if she has had same condition for a while, she should be evaluated for allergic rhinitis, deviated nasal septum, etc.

My 2.5 year old son is showing a stuffy nose, sore throat, general lethargy, loss of appetite and reduced defecation frequency. What could it be?

Not strep

Lips
Streptococcal throat infections do not cause a runny nose. If runny nose is present, one can generally rule out strep infection. When 2 yo get sick, they don't eat well & get pretty droopy from malaise & fever. If they don't eat or drink well they don't poop much. You describe a typical toddler viral cold. He should be checked if fever persists more than 3 days or he doesn't pep up.

My 3 year old daughter has a very bad cold. She can't breathe, sneezing, low grade temp of 9.2. Temp and sneezing we can handle. The stuffy nose is ca?

Decongestant

Congestion
If the nasal congestion is the big problem at this point, you can start by trying nasal saline with a Neti Pot or any of the many over-the-counter saline solutions out there. These really can help reduce the swelling in the nose and help child breath easier. It's also OK to do a dose or two of diphenhydramine (children's Benadryl) to relieve significant congestion.

What are some home remedies for stuffy nose for a 4 year old ?

Nasal Congestion

Stuffed_nose
You are limited at that age. The first step is to use some saline drops and a suction bulb syringe. If this child doesn't tolerate suctioning the nose that way, you can try a little saline spray to moisten the nose and clear it out. You can also use an oral decongestant to open the nose up.

My 4 year old has a stuffy nose headache and cough. What should I give her?

Depends

Stuffed_nose
head ache associated with cough and stuffy nose could be from sinus infection and may need antibiotics. However head ache is not a common complaint of a 4 yr old.

20 year old male Rash on neck stuffy nose pressure in head and ears coughing ?

Sinus problem +?

Head
The stuffy nose, pressure in head and ears, and coughing sound like a sinus and/or middle ear infection. The other possibility is environmental allergies to something unr sensitive to. The rash on the neck? Not usually part of above possibilities. May be a separate problem, possibly even a skin allergy to a contactant. If throat is sore or fever, worrisome. See you PCP.
