Can I Fly With My Baby When She Has A Cold
Depends on variables: This varies with the intensity of the symptoms and your need for travel.If you know you will have available backup healthcare where you are going it is less a problem. If the kids misery would make the trip a real burden I would consider delaying or skipping it altogether.
It depends: If your baby is less than 3 months with a fever of 100.4 or greater, than yes. If your baby's cold is causing increased work of breathing, than yes. If your baby is having trouble keeping hydrated, than yes. Most "colds" involve a runny nose and cough which do not necessarily need a doctor's attention unless accompanied by other worrisome symptoms.
Avoid aromas: I am fine with a misting vaporizer for any kid with congestion. However, I consider Vicks as air pollution and likely to produce more airway irritation in infants. I seldom recommend this product, and limit it to kids over 6 years if I do. Your better therapy at 1 monts is bountiful use of nasal saline drops and nasal suction.
Is it ok to prop up my 10month old baby with a pillow or something at night if she has a cold? Will this cause everything to sit in her chest?
It will help: By elevating your baby's head, it allows gravity to minimize the upper airway congestion associated with a cold. The problem is how can you keep your baby propped up? Can she sleep in a car seat?
Wife is pregnant, she has a cold and a dry cough what can she take to help that doesn't affect the baby?
Rest: Rest, fluids, and time are the safest. Plain Robitussin or cough drops can help. The NIH actually did a study proving that chicken soup really does help. Hot tea with honey and lemon can sooth as can inhaling steam and gargling with warm salt water. If she needs more she should check with her doctor. If it is influenza she may need an antiviral like tamiflu (oseltamivir) or even hospitalization.Hope she feels better
I woke up my daughter up at 4 am but she has a cold. Does this effect the EEG and will I get sent home after sleep depriving my child if she has a cold?
I have a 1 year old baby girl and she has a cold that she has had for a month. She has a cough and her nose runs green?
URI: Children can get 6-8 colds a year, especially if in daycare or school. Often the colds occur in winter months and can seem like a continuous problem. It is possible the child has sinusitis or adenoiditis and may need an antibiotic. You should flush the child's nose with nasal saline. See pediatrician or ent.
I have a 8 month old baby, 6.5 in corrected age. She's very healthy she has a cold and she sounds like her throat is a bit raspy can I give her tea?
Yes: Follow the directions, but yes, it is safe.
Baby has lots of green eye discharge and watery eyes but eyes are not pink/red. She has a cold and rubs eyes. Pink eye? Polymicin?
Why?: A cold is a cold. There are many different cold viruses, but we don't test for them, because it doesn't help to know which virus is the cause.
Needs to be seen: Your child needs to be examined, kindly take him to his doctor or to the ER, good luck
Cold virus: A person with a cold is contagious as long as he/she has cold symptoms which is air born (sneezing) or thru direct contact.
