4 Month Old Baby With Stuffy Nose And Cough
Humidified air : And nasal saline. Most cold medications have side effects which are dangerous for children under age 4. I like humidified air via a steam bath. Use 1 inch of cold water in the tub then turn shower on hot. Stand in bathroom and allow warmed humidified air to soften secretions. Stand far enough to avoid burns. A few drops of nasal saline with gentle bulb suction also works well. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Treat the symptoms: It is difficult to protect your baby from common viruses and when they do become ill, it is not recommended to use any cold/cough medicine like an adult might use. I would watch carefully for fever, use the blue bulb suction to help clear mucous from her nose and make sure she is getting plenty to eat/drink. You can run a humididifier by her bedside to help aid in breathing and mucous clearing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Why: The ER is full of patients with gunshots/heart attacks/ broken bones & a variety of contagious diseases. This kind of story would put you at the bottom of the "urgent need" list, so you could expect to spend hours waiting while more urgent issues were taken ahead of you. If you think there is something dreadful going on rather than the "cold" it seems to be go ahead, but plan to wait hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My LO is 8 mo. 20 lbs. I gave her infant Tylenol (acetaminophen). She has a thick runny nose and watery eyes (allergies) can I also give her children's benadryl?
Benedryl indication: Although the manufacturer does not indicate it's use in children under 2 years of age, it is not uncommon for it to be recommended 'off label' by pediatricians.
