In brief: Yes

There is no interaction here and the tylenol (acetaminophen) will help keep the child comfortable.

In brief: Yes

Respiratory syncytial virus (rsv) is basicly the "cold".
In partially immune older folks it may only cause a runny nose & cough.In some susceptable infants it can go deep into the airways of the lungs & cause a bountiful outpouring of mucous & debris that cause lots of problems. Acetomenophen is a simple comfort med that helps in pain & fever management. It can be used safely in rsv.
