Allergies: I hate to say it, but itching/sneezing/runny nose, provided you're not sick at the time with a viral infection, is usually the result of environmental or seasonal allergies. Even if you've never had them before, you can actually develop allergies at any age, though don't give up hope as you can lose them too. It's worth checking your environment; any new exposures that could account for this? ...Read more

My son is 2. The last couple of days I've noticed specks of blood in the mucus in his nose. No runny nose, fever or congestion. Not dry in house. ?

Nose bleed??: If he doesn't have a runny nose or nasal congestion, then why does he have mucous in his nose? The blood vessels on the nasal septum or very fragile, and only minor trauma can cause bleeding. If he is feeling well, no need to get an evaluation, but it may help to put small amount of antibiotic ointment just inside the nares for a few days. ...Read more

Irritability cough and a runny nose in an infant?

Depends on . . .: Babies ages 3-12 months can easily catch colds from other people. If there is just a runny nose, without much fussiness, without any high fever, without other worrisome symptoms, then parents can leave the nose alone. If the mucous is blocking the nose somewhat, try a few drops of saline, followed by gentle suctioning with a suction bulb. A doctor should examine younger or more symptomatic babies. ...Read more

My 14 year old son complains of headaches, nasal discharge with blood and mucus in throat with tinge of blood, some chest pain intermittently.

Workup mgt: His chest pain may be related to an infection given his sinus symptoms. I would suggest an evaluation. Treatment with antibiotics may be needed to treat both infections.
