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.

Hi
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

For the past month or so my right hand side nostril leaks 2-3 drops of clear fluid (no taste/smell) whenever I lower my head e.g. bend over, lie face down. No obvious inflamation/obstruction or recent cold, flu, or nasal/head/eye injury. I am male, mid 50's with no allergies, headaches, etc. and occassionally snore if lying on my right side (so I am told!) Septum has always been slightly 'curved' towards right hand side so nasal lining will touch sides during a cold. Non smoker. My partner cannot see any obvious nasal obstruction/swelling/lump but cannot see as far up the right nostril.

hello. i have no idea if i have a cold or flu or what. i was looking online but they say a cold you would have a runny nose. i do not but my nose is a little plugged [i can still breathe..and i thinks its been like this before..i dont think its allergies because i am not sneezing] i was coughing (it's getting a little better). i do not have a headache or puffy eyes. i started feeling bad (sore throat- it hurt to talk and swollow) maybe on the 19th or 18th [every so often coughing really bad as well] and i have been taking plenty of Airborne. Today my throat does not hurt when i speak (it doesnt hurt when i swollow..it just feels odd) and i have not been coughing as much (maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what i was coughing like]. Is this a cold or flu or what? and is it contagious [still? how would i know if it was] ? i do not want to get my family sick and i would like to haang out with a friend this weekend.

Hi there. I was feeling really run down for a few weeks and then I had a flu (proper flu). Was hoping that would be the end of it, but two weeks after the bout of flu I still feel really exhausted - so haven t been back to the gym. I kinda feel like only half my heart and lungs are working - ie quite weak. My voice also sounds tired. Feel worn out and depressed and head feels like it could explode (although don t have headache as such). Have had a runny nose the past couple of days and noticed blood in my mucus - and have just had a nose bleed. Any advice?
