Take him to the dr: Insurance should not be the primary concern, your two year old should be. I am sure that you get groceries and gas even though your insurance does not cover these items. Sometimes you can negotiate in advance for a cash price. ...Read more

Neti pot: The net pot is really effective, though admittedly scary to use at first. You can get it at your local drug store, along with the little pre-measured salt packets. The whole thing will cost about $20. Use boiled filtered water that has cooled down, is mildly warm. Too hot or too cold, and it's not that comfortable. http://www.webmd.com/allergies/sinus-pain-pressure-11/neti-pots good luck! ...Read more

Thick green  yellow mucus running from nose after 1 week of cold with large clear colored nasal discharge?

Flora shifting: If no fevers or significant pain--let it run! in fact, take mucinex to keep things thin and flowing. Your body is likely re-balancing the flora in its sinuses, and this should stop about double the time you were sick. If fevers/pain, then see dr / urgent care. ...Read more

Unrelated: These two things are unrelated. Could be seasonal allergies for the nose and eyes. The vaginal discharge could be a myriad of things. If you're really worried, you'll need to see your primary care doctor for a more compete evaluation. Could try over the counter allergy meds in the mean time. Hope this Helps! ...Read more

Bad cold??: How long have you had these problems? Sounds like there is a lot draining gown your throat as well. Do you have fever? Body aches!? Do your upper teeth hurt? If you have been sick longer than 10-14 days you should see your dr as you might have developed a sinus infection . Use a cool mist humidifier in your bedroom, try not to blow, keep you nose moist with saline spray . Mucinex helps too. ...Read more
