Infant with dry cough, congested, no fever. Serious?
My son is 10weeks old he has a dry cough very congested not sneezing too much and he has had no fever. I ve tried the bulb syringe and nasal spray and humidifier but he still seems miserable. He still has a appetite just not as much as he used to have. Do you think it s a cold or something more...

I have tender swollen lymph nodes, constant drainage down back of throat, and fuzzy feeling. Low grade fever. No congestion or headache. Feel unwell!
Hi Aeallbritton ! I am Dr Shareef answering your query. Tender swollen lymph nodes are due to infection of the draining area for the nodes and with your symptoms could be the nose, throat or the sinuses.Fever is due infection. You have to take a course of antibiotics, steam inhalation and some decongestant drug after getting yourself examined by a ENT specialist/family physician. Good luck.
