Depends on . . .: Babies ages 3-12 months can easily catch colds from other people. If there is just a runny nose, without much fussiness, without any high fever, without other worrisome symptoms, then parents can leave the nose alone. If the mucous is blocking the nose somewhat, try a few drops of saline, followed by gentle suctioning with a suction bulb. A doctor should examine younger or more symptomatic babies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

3 ear infections in a row (over 2mths) for 2.5 & 3.5 year olds. Also had cold symptoms cough and runny nose. Started with swimming. Caused by it?
Swimming usually ok: Swimming CAN cause EXTERNAL ear infections (probably not what they had). Likely the culprit was a viral syndrome (cold with cough & runny nose). Repeat infections are not uncommon. But also keep in mind that it can takes months for the fluid to resolve from behind the eardrum, which can cause continued hearing issues and discomfort, and is NOT a re-infection, but is often misdiagnosed as such. ...Read more
My baby daughter is 2 mths old and developed irritating cough, she also had runny nose and it was a bit blocked. How can I help her. ?
See Your Doctor NOW: 2 mos old has "irritating cough". Babies at this age do catch colds however the distinction between a simple upper respiratory infection vs. more serious such as Pneumonia is difficult to make. Signs & symptoms are unreliable at this age & it is easy to miss cues of worsening condition. Also fever may or may not be present. See your baby's doctor NOW for correct diagnosis and prompt treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby will be 6 months in 2 weeks. Her temperature is now 97.1°F. She has a cough and a runny nose. should she go to the ER?
More info needed: Thank you for your question! I would have her go to the ER if she is having trouble breathing (wheezing, noisy breathing). Most likely it is a common cold (antibiotics wouldn't help). Just use a humidifier in her room and watch her temp. If she develops a fever (defined as over 100.3 F, then she should go to the ER. I hope she feels better!!! ...Read more

Reflux/nodules/allrg: This pattern brings to mind cases where the child had mild reflux that increased with feeds before bedtime, producing night cough. Some made it onto the vocal cords causing nodules or swelling. Runny nose can be due to reflux irritation of the backside of the nasal passages. An ENT evaluation would help. Sometimes avoiding late feeds has helped. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

After exposure to rsv, my 4yr/o developed rsv/cold. Sick about 6d, mostly cough/runny nose. No breathing probs. See dr or continue treating symptoms?
Keep observing: If no fever or severe cough or breathing problems, then recommend treating the RSV as the typical cold virus it is for children this age.
