7 months old baby with a bad runny nose how to get rid of that bc she can't breath bc of the snuffed and i gave her a few drops of motrin, hummifier in the room and vick rub. any other idea? please help. its only been 2-3up days

Stop the rub

Ibuprofen
I consider the Vick's rub an air pollutant when used in infants. It can prolong or worsen congestion. A liberal wash out of her nose with saline can remove some of the irritants & thin out the mucous. Sometimes you must wash out the nose using saline like a garden hose to be effective.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

irritability cough and a runny nose in an infant?

Depends on . . .

Nose
Babies ages 3-12 months can easily catch colds from other people. If there is just a runny nose, without much fussiness, without any high fever, without other worrisome symptoms, then parents can leave the nose alone. If the mucous is blocking the nose somewhat, try a few drops of saline, followed by gentle suctioning with a suction bulb. A doctor should examine younger or more symptomatic babies.

what are causes of a continuous cough and runny nose in an infant?

Many

Rhinitis
Continuous cough and runny nose in an infant should be discussed with your doctor. It might be as simple as recurrent colds this time of year, but it could signify a chronic condition (wheezing or acid reflux), or a more serious infection (whooping cough or bronchiolitis). Treatments vary based on the cause, so a careful exam should be done by your pediatrician.

If I am breast feeding and have severe cough and runny nose does this affects my 3 week infant? I am also giving her formula bottle .

Yes but

You may be contagious, but breast feeding is the best way to protect your baby from illness. Practice good handwashing, don't kiss your baby on the face, and keep breast feeding! Hope you feel better soon.

My son just turned 2 and has a slight fever and runny nose. should he still be taking infant tylenol and should I still be using saline nose drops?

Yes and yes

Runny_nose
Saline drops don't hurt at any age. And infant Tylenol drops should still work with increased dose ( 15 mg/ kilo/ dose)

How can flu in an infant be treated ? Hi, my baby 2 month-old has been having flu symptoms for 2 days such as stufy nose and dry coughe?

Depends

Influenza
If this is really the flu & baby is in bad shape the tamiflu can be used along with IV fluids & other supportive measures. If the baby is not hospitalized, most just support with fluids & comfort medications during the process. Stuffy nose & dry cough in a 2mo could be just nasal irritation from dust/smoke/fragrance or other such air born debris.Nasal wash out with saline would be preferred Rx.

Is my baby's runny nose allergies? He's 6 months old

Maybe

Photo_005
Young babies can have allergic nasal inflamation (rhinitis) with constant runny nose. A 6 month old can also have multiple cold during the winter and have an almost constant runny nose from fall to spring. Speak with your pediatrician about the appropriate dose of an antihistamine to use for your baby. If control is inadequate consult an allergist.

Dr. Laura McMullen answered:

Could runny nose be due to her teething? And what remedies are safe to clear her out? I have a 7 month old baby who just cut her first two bottom teeth this week. in this time she has developed an extreme runny nose and congestion that seems to obstruct

Teething

Teething and the symptoms attributed to it are a common concern for parents. Lots of studies have looked at this and shown the most common symptoms of teething to be: -increased biting -drooling -gum-rubbing -sucking -irritability -wakefulness -ear rubbing -facial rash -decreased appetite for solid foods -slightly elevated temperature (but still under 100.4F orally) Her runny nose and congestion are more likely due to a cold. There are no over the counter cough or cold medications that are safe to give any children under 4 years old. They were all removed from the shelves a few years ago. Research showed that they did not help kids feel better in that age group and in fact could be harmful. If your infant is congested, you can run a cool mist vaporizer in her room and use saline and nasal suction to clear her nose. Otherwise you just have to let it run it's course. If she develops a fever, has any difficulty breathing, stops eating/drinking, acts very irritable or sleepy or acts sick in any way, call your child's doctor.
