My son is 3 months old and has been sick for a little over a week now. His symptoms include sneezing, sniffling, runny nose, and bloody mucous. He also doesn't sleep as much anymore and is constantly biting/sucking on his fingers.

A bean in the nostril would take another child/person. ...Read more
