Yes: Nasal itching is a common symptom of allergy. A person can be allergic to anything, including an air freshener plug-in.

Fevers : Fevers for the most part aren't dangerous and are just the body's natural reaction to fighting off an infection. Most of these infections are viral and may be accompanied by runny nose, sore throat, congestion, mild rash, or nothing at all. Since fevers aren't dangerous, we usually treat the fever with Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen just to make the child more comfortable as their body fights the illness. "red flags" that we look for with fever to indicate something more serious is going on are: -fevers that last 5 days or more -fevers persistently above 104f orally -a child that acts very sick - very irritable or difficult to wake -difficulty breathing -vomiting, diarrhea, refusal to drink, or dehydration -a purple rash, esp on the legs -stiff neck -any complaints of pain such as the ear, throat, stomach or a joint i am more concerned about his rapid breathing and vomiting than the fever. With pneumonia, you should start to see an improvement after 48 hours of antibiotics. If he is the same or worsening, then you should take him back in. Good luck! ...Read more
