Congestion But No Runny Nose
My baby had chest congestion but no runny nose. I've been using a vaporizer. Now her nose has started running. Doesthis mean she's getting better or worse?
Depends: Both are symptoms of a common cold and can appear at different times, but do not mean it is getting worse. However, if the symptoms are lasting more than 7-10 days or there are additional symptoms including, but not limited to such as fever, difficulty breathing, wheezing, I would recommend seeing a pediatrician. ...Read more

I have a fever at 100.4, achy back and legs, sore throat and mild congestion but no runny nose. Occasional mild cough. How likely is it flu or strep?
How long?: If it is a chronic problem, there are many potential causes but hay fever being the most common. Sometimes the nose may start running after reduction of the nasal congestion. Claritin may dry up the nose but does nothing for decongestion. Claritin-d may be a better bet although it may also keep you awake at night. See an allergist if this problem continues. ...Read more
What can I do to help relieve my 7 month old son's congestion and persistent runny nose? I want to avoid over-the-counter cold treatments if possible.
Infant meds: Most medications are neither approved or recommended for infants. Normal saline drops to the nose can help loosen secretions and possibly decrease swelling (avoid excessive bulb suction as this traumatizes the membranes of the nose and worsens swelling). Cool mist humidifers may also help. Zyrtec (cetirizine) is approved for 6 months and older if an allergic component is suspected. ...Read more

My one year old has been having congestion nd runny nose for about two months already. Is it normal?
It depends: If your child has congestion and runny nose, but is acting well (eating and sleeping well), it may be allergy related. In many parts of the country, spring and fall allergies can be really severe. Give him lots of fluids to keep the mucous loose, suction his nose with saline drops, and use a cool mist humidifier as needed. Call your doctor if he has a fever >101 for >2-3 days, or is acting sick. ...Read more

I have severe congestion, sneezing, runny nose, awful dry sometimes yellow mucus cough, my mucus from my nose is clear. I took allegra, did not help at all. I cant decide if its allergies or a sinus infection/cold. Its been 3 days. Should I take mucinex c
Infection?: Try a different antihistamine, like Benadryl (diphenhydramine). If 25-50 mg of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) makes no difference, then it is not likely that your symptoms are due to allergies. There is no good evidence that mucinex is much help and it is expensive and has its own side effects, and I never recommend it. Avoid fragrances and aerosols while sick (add to irritation of respiratory tract). See MD if no better in 2-3 days. ...Read more
