Question
My 3 year old has had a low-grade fever since Thursday evening. Additionally, she has stuffy nose, cough and complained of ear ache. I assumed it was a typical cold but she now has green discharge from one of her eyes and nose. Any suggestions?

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to the healthcaremagic

Clinically she has bacterial infection causing conjunctivitis, rhinitis and otitis media.She will need oral antibiotic treatment.

Keep her ears dry. Don't put oil or water or ear drops in ear. Clean her eyes frequently with cold water. Wash hands repeatedly to prevent spread to others. Give lots of fluids.

Happy to help you
Best regards
