I have a 10 months baby, who have a absess in her leg, the docto, give her amocixillin... She have cough and nasal congestion, that's help or worse her?

Abscess: A 10 month old with infection needs to be monitored very carefully. Hopefully the treatment with Amoxicillin was based on the sensitivity of the causative organism isolated by culture of the abscess and not empirically. The cough and nasal congestion may be an entirely different issue. Make sure the doctor is familiar with the care of infants or is a pediatrician. ...Read more

My 8wo baby has been plagued with nasal congestion. No fever. How can I make him comfortable? And how long does this usually last?

Congestion: You can use a saline nasal spray to loosen secretions and a small rubber bulb to gently aspirate much of this material out. These conditions can be present for variable durations depending on what is causing them. If allergy, may be there quite long until you identify the offending agent and remove or desensitize. If viral, usually about a week, but may be longer depending on the virus and baby. ...Read more

Is constant nasal congestion and large tonsils a reason to have a t&a in a 4 year old autistic child?

Is constant nasal congestion and large tonsils a reason to have a t&a in a 4 year old autistic child?

Nasal congestion: Nasal congestion in a 4-year old is most commonly caused by only a couple of things. By far the most common is adenoids being enlarged. The second is that the turbinates are too big. Large tonsils by themselves usually don't cause the nose to be plugged up. Often, though, when the tonsils are large, so are the adenoids. Nasal congestion alone would not be sufficient for t&a, so see an ent. ...Read more

My 3 months baby may caught what I have, sore throat. She has a temperature of 98.6, nasal congestion and runny nose, sneezing and coughing. What to do

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 more
