My 2 year old had a bad cough and a runny nose.  What can I give him or do for him?

Symptom relief: Keep an eye on his temperature and activity level. An active, playful, and energetic child is a reassuring sign. Encourage fluids. As much as possible, keep him away from others, as what he has is probably contagious. Honey can relieve coughs and soothe throats. Have him checked by his doctor to determine if he needs any kind of treatment, or just time for this illness to resolve. ...Read more

If these symptoms have occurred before or become recurrent, this could be early signs of asthma, especially if the child has eczema, food allergies, hayfever or parents with asthma. Wheezing suggests significant lung involvement and warrants a trip to the doctor. ...Read more

My daughter is 1 year old. She has a running nose, congested,  coughing, fevers, and vomits when she drinks milk. What can I do and give her to help?

Probably viral: Most colds in children are viral, and there is no cure (as compared to bacterial infections, for which we can use antibiotics). Treatment is mainly supportive (increase fluids, control pain, saline drops to nose, albuterol if wheezing). Viral illnesses usually self resolve in a few days. Prolonged illness, worsening symptoms, new fever, irritability, poor feeding, vomiting signal complications ...Read more

Usually saline drops and gentle suction are adequate for symptomatic relief. However, if baby displays fussiness, fever, sleeplessness, worsening cough, or diarrhea then concerns of possible ear or throat infection must be considered, triggering a call to your pediatrician. ...Read more

My baby is 2m old .can i give him a little honey for his throat n stuffy nose?

No : Do NOT give honey to your 2 month old. Honey can be very dangerous in a child less than 1 year old. 2 month olds don't typically get sore throats and honey won't cure a stuffy nose. If your 2 month old is sick, they should be evaluated by a pediatrician. If they have a fever, they need to be seen urgently. ...Read more
