I'd suggest vaporizer, fluids, suction nose with saline, and if over 1 yr, a tsp of honey. Don't use honey if less than 1yr, as there is a risk of botulism. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I suppose: Pediasure is a dietary supplement that is designed to meet some of the nutrition need of growing kids. An adult could gain some benefit from its use, but would get similar benefit from less expensive products like Carnation Breakfast Essentials if a shake like drink is desired. I prefer a good steak balanced with a few sides, but that's just me. ...Read more

pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, chlorphenamine maleate, acetaminophen?
I do not think so: If you are asking for a single medication that is available otc with all 3 ingredients, I am not aware of any. You can find some that have the Pseudoephedrine and the chlorpheniramine but not the acetaminophen. I believe advil (ibuprofen) allergy sinus is close having Ibuprofen instead of the Acetaminophen in pill form. That said, cold medications are not recommended for children less than 4 years of age. ...Read more
