My 2.8 yrold has runny nose- and a cough at night-- no fever-- 2 days in. He's had tons of colds -this time his nasal discharge is thicker and yellow?

Sounds like: Postnasal drainage causing the coughing spells. Need antihistamine to take care of the colds which eventually takes care of the cough. Change in color of colds does not indicate bacterial infection, virus, allergies can do the same. Watchful waiting and supportive treatment at this time since he is not running fever. See Peds if condition worsened. ...Read more

Wezzy lung mild cough runny nose yellow in color no fever feel fine. Why lung wezzing when I take deep breaths?

Restrictive Airways: Is the term that comes to mind. "wheezing" is the sound created when air moves through narrowed breathing passages or tubes. Because there may be differing causes for the condition you describe, it's best, ultimately, to find out why. Allergy, infection, asthma, smoking-related constriction are possibilities. A mild URI may also lead to intermittent wheezing which is self-limited and not serious. ...Read more

Hi, I have been feeling unwell for the last 4 days. On/off fever, cough with thick and yellow phlegm, runny nose, hoarse voice and sore throat with difficulty swallowing.

Cold?: Sounds like a viral syndrome. Would treat with symptomatic fixes. Lots of fluids and stay hydrated. Ice blocks are perfect for this. Water, milk, juice, sports drinks are all good. As for the fever it is ok to alternate pamol every 6 hours with ibuprofen every 8 hours. Decongestants and anti-histamines will help with the upper resp symptoms. Rest chicken soups are also good. See Dr if not better in a few days ...Read more

Friend has fever for 3 days. 101. Runny nose stared clear now yellow. Tired is antibiotic needed now?

No: This still sounds like your average viral respiratory tract infection. The fact that nasal drainage has become colored does not mean it is bacterial and warrants antibiotics. It means the body is doing what it is supposed to by sending white blood cells to the area to fight the infection, which causes the change in color of the mucous. She is tired because her body wants her to rest. ...Read more

May need antibiotics: The usual viral upper respiratory infection lasts about 1 week.

See your md for evaluation if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read more

Bronchospasm: Assuming you are not a smoker, have sinusitis with cough from postnasal drip, nor diagnosed as having pneumonia, COPD or asthma, you probably have acute bronchitis of viral origin with persisting bronchospasm. This often improves with short-course prednisone & bronchodilator. If not, further evaluation is necessary. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Kids: You should have them see their pediatrician to determine what is causing their recurrent symptoms. If they are having cough after running around or during their sleep, they may have asthma.
