Fluid: It sounds like you may have fluid in your eustachian tubes. As your sinuses are clear, avoid the rinses and try Valsalva manoeuvres to try and open them up. If not see ENT. All the best. ...Read more

There : There are no over the counter cough or cold medications that are safe to give any children under 2 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 granddaughter 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.

You should not add water to her bottle. Even though this was common practice years ago, we found that a baby's kidneys are too immature to be able to handle water. Too much water can lower an infant's salt levels and cause seizures. You should continue breast milk or formula and can use a rehydration solution such as pedialyte which all have proper salt ratios for little ones.

If she develops a fever, has any difficulty breathing, stops eating/drinking, acts very irritable or sleepy or acts sick in any way, call her doctor right away. ...Read more

I have sinus drainage in back of throat and when I clear my throat I spit out green bloody mucus. Is this a indication of a sinus infection or cold?

I have sinus drainage in back of throat and when I clear my throat I spit out green bloody mucus. Is this a indication of a sinus infection or cold?

#1 Sinus infection: When mucus is not clear or white, you've probably got infection. The green tells me it's been awhile and blood that it's very badly irritated. See a doctor - I'm cautious w/ antibiotics but this is a green light. Clear it up and discuss ways to prevent recurrence. It's why your face hurts too. You'll feel much better soon - call ASAP. ...Read more

Sinus drainage, all clear mucous, post nasal drip in back of throat, clearing throat constantly, just started getting body aches, but no fever?

Sinus drainage, all clear mucous, post nasal drip in back of throat, clearing throat constantly, just started getting body aches, but no fever?

What's the question?: The symptoms sound like a viral respiratory infection ("cold"). Unless you develop a high fever, severe cough, chest pain, or shortness of breath, no antibiotics or specific medicines will help. The best treatments are rest, lots of fluids, a nasal decongestant or antihistamine if you are uncomfortably congested or need to just dry the drip, and a non-prescription pain reliever if needed. ...Read more
