Maybe. . .: Best to go to doctor in AM, assuming otherwise doing ok. But if any change in activity (granted it should be past his/her bedtime by now), then don't wait, just go immediately to ER. Of note, there are many viruses, of which influenza (the "flu") is just one. To be even more precise, there are many types of "flu". Biggest problem is that viruses don't respond to antibiotics. So always wash hands. ...Read more

My son is 9 months old. I think he has some seasional allergies. He is sneezing a lot, red watery eyes, and runny nose and all discharge is clear?

Don't assume allergy: If I blow pepper in your face, you sneeze & drain the same as those with allergy. I find babies have more congestion with scented cleaning products, perfume, smoke & other irritants than they do with animal dander or pollens.
