my son have a productive cough and a running nose?

See advice below.

Head
Use saline nose drops and suction the mucus from the nose as often as needed (if he can blow his nose, do that after saline drops). Also,elevate the head of the crib or bed. If your doctor OK's it, use a humidifier in the room during sleep. Cold and cough meds are proven not to help and can cause severe side effects. If these actions don't help enough, he needs to see his doctor.

What is the most likely diagnosis of running nose slight fever and productive cough?

Viral Infection

Nose
The most likely cause of a runny nose, cough, and fever is a viral infection. It is possible for these symptoms to be related to a bacterial infection that would require antibiotics, however most physicians will advise to wait 24-48 hours before considering prescribing and antibiotic in the absence of any other definitive symptoms that would suggest a bacterial infection. Hope this helps!

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

Flora shifting

Nasal_drainage
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.

My son is 6 and half month he got fever but no coughing or running nose or anything. I gave him carpol is that ok?

.

Lips
Fever is just a symptom. Need to know why he has it. Need to treat source of fever not just the fever. By carpol I hope you mean a brand of acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Acetaminophen and ibuprofen are ok to decrease fever. But Need to see physician if your child has any source of infection that may need treatment.

My Son(2 1/2 Months) And I (19) been having a running nose, heavy breathing, and a slit cough. Is there anything we can do or take?

Sick baby

Cough_
A two month baby is too young for cold medicines. You can use nasal saline, bulb suction, and a humidifier. Watch for fever, rapid breathing, or wheezing which necessitate a doctors visit. You can use over the counter cold medicines for yourself.
