My 4 months old baby is suffering from fever. My husband had fever before

wondering about 4 month old with fever and sinus pressure--what to do Thank you. My husband has recently been sick with flu-like symtpoms (fever at nite, chills throughout the day, now a cough, severe sinus pressure) and he seems to be doing better after 7 days. I'm worried about our 4 month old daughter; she's developing a low grade fever (100.4) and a little bit of a cough and sneezing. We have infant ibuprofen that our doctor okayed giving .4mL; but I'm worried if her symptoms progress to the sinus issue, my husband had a very difficult time breathing and clearing it out. What can we do?

It could be a possibility that your child caught viral infection from your husband. consult you treating paediatrician. initially if it is viral no antibiotics are required. you can give steam inhalation to your baby .Crocin as antipyretic would be safe in the dosage as advised by your doctor on sos basis Follow up with your doctor
Take care
