Question: Hi, My 1.5 year old daughter has just developed cold ( running nose). Her nose is not blocked at the moment. I wanted to check which medicine should i give her and what dosage. She has had piriton cs or relent in the past. She does not have any cough. I have already started giving her steam inhalation. Please let me know at the earliest. Thanks.

Thanks for writing to us.
Your baby probably has upper respiratory tract infection , mostly viral. You can give relent as you mentioned around 2 ml two or three times daily.
Wishing you a speedy recovery

5 days ago I had the following sysmptoms. Fever, Chills, Chest congestion without any mucous coming up. Pain in Chest. Head aches. Continuous uncontrolable deep coughing but no phlem or mucous. Sinus congestion but no runny nose. So fatigued could barely get out of bed. I called my doctor but was to sick to make an appointment. He prescribed me Doxycyclin Hyclate 100mg 14 pills. I still have 2 days worth left to take. All my symptoms have finally subsided except for the dry cough but chest still feels congested and I cannot cough anything up. My wife is sick with the same her symptoms started 3 days before mine. Her symptoms have subsided aswell except for the cough and chest congestion. My question s are, was this just Flu and also how long will the congestion last?

Last month (Early December) I was having ear pain, sore throat, cough, and mucus/runny nose. I also noticed a grouping of about 3 or 4 white spots(inflamed with puss-like characteristics). I had my tonsils removed about 8 years ago. My doctor said I had a regular infection it ll pass in 2 weeks, and the symptoms were gone. Yesterday I looked in my throat and those spots are identical and haven t resolved. When I was younger I had strep with the tonsil stones but this is not it. I snore. Have sore throats in the morning. Sacks or bumps in throat are not at all painful. My tongue is white at the very back of it. Doctor took a culture and it wasn t strep. Also I have put on about 12-20 lbs. since summer of 2010 and. H doctor is worried a out dibetes and cholesterol tests. Does anyone know what this is? Thank you.

I have been sick for about 3 days now. I have a sore throat and a stuffy nose, but no cough or runny nose. I also have a constant headache that gets worse if i turn my head fast or stand up too quickly. I have an earache in my left ear from it, too. I can hear, but everything just seems to be a little muffled. I have chills and a fever of over 100. I feel weak and tired all of the time, but laying down makes it worse, and I can barely sleep. And, finally, what I m really here about, is what I ve been coughing up. The first time, it was mucus with streaks of blood, but this morning, it was completely blood. It was slimy at first, but once it dried out, it looked (and felt) like tissue or flesh. I ve never had this happen before, but I don t think it s just coincidental. I d hope, that at the very least, the bloody tissue is related to my cold or flu, instead of being caused by something more serious. I d really appreciate the help. Thank you.
