See doctor.

Runny_nose
If your child has had cough & runny nose nonstop for that long, it's time to see the doctor to see if there's a bacterial infection or allergies as the cause.

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

Symptom relief

Cough
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.

What is the best antihistamine to give a 4 year old with a runny nose?

Variable

Runny_nose
Kids are variable in their response to a particular med and no one product is the "gold" standard of efficiency. The speed of action, duration of effect and frequency of side effects also varies from one product to another.I like the non--sedating products like fexofenadine and loratadine, but for some benedryl is quicker and well tolerated.Trial and error helps decide for the individual kid.

My one year old has watery eyes and runny nose, should I give him antihistamines?

Seldom needed

Runny_nose
Although used for decades these meds have not been shown to shorten an illness & may increase the thickness of secretions making it harder to cough them out.Many kids felt a little more would help them & self medicated & ended up in emergency rooms.The AAP & other groups discourage their use under 6. I have mixed feelings. Saline nasal wash is preferable for younger kids.

Dr. Holly Maes answered:

My 2 year old granddaughter has a fever along with watery eyes and a runny nose. What should I give her?

Give love and soup!

Rhinitis
You don't actually NEED to give her anything. If her fever is under 104 and she is drinking OK and not complaining of pain, it is really better to let her run the fever to help fight her infection. With the runny nose, there are not alot of great helpful meds for a 2 y/o. As helpful is humidity, fluids (good ole chicken soup) and the cuddle of someone to let her know you are there for her.

Dr. Bryan H. Levey answered:

What meds can i give a two year old for stuffy nose/runny nose. And can i give it with a fever reducer at the same time/??

Lots of things

There are a variety of homeopathic meds that are safe and helpful in two year olds with colds. See your local health food store or Whole Foods. Vicks vapor rub is old, tried and true, and helpful with nasal congestion. Saline drops in the nose followed by suction can help. Yes, you can give fever reducer too. However, if you're looking for cold meds like adults use (nyquil etc.), forget it.

Dr. John T. Chiu answered:

Four year old has had a runny nose and cough all week, now has fever. Was already on an antibiotic with a cough for two weeks prior.

How high?

Antibiotic
If the fever is under 102 , it is likely a viral infection . Another explanation would be that the antibiotic used for the prior infection is not the right one.
