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.

My 7 month old girl has been running a fever, green runny nose, coughing up mucus, extra cranky & not sleeping well. Teething or somethmelse?

Something Else

Head-nose
While teething may cause a low grade fever and crankiness, it does not cause a green runny nose and coughing up mucus. I would bring your baby to their pediatrician ASAP, this is not teething.

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.

My 7 month old grandson has a fever of 101.8 also runny nose and cough. should we call the Dr. Or give Tylenol or wait.

How does he look?

Stringio
If he is alert, is willing to drink some fluids, wants to cuddle with you and have you read to him that favorite book, he does not need a doctor tonight. Fever is not a disease that needs treatment - it is just one of many symptoms that something is going on. At his age, likely a virus, but if he is not acting right or fever persists, then call your doc tomorrow for further advice. Drink Lots!

Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

Dr. Donald R. Nino answered:

My almost 7 month old little boy has been breathing heavily with Wet cough, runny nose, and fever. Could the breathing be a sign of RSV?

RSV

Open-uri20120920-28072-jokzqg
Respiratory syncytial virus is most often seen from Dec to Mar but can be seen at any time. More often in premature and the very young <12 weeks old. Can be associated with day care. Most symptoms are fever, runny nose, cough, wheezing trouble breathing and loss of appetite. Any young infant with fever should be evaluated. It could just be a cold but an examination would be best to check.
