Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

I understand your concern. Some advice that I can give you are: 

1) Use saline and suction.
2) Continue with Calpol 250mg, for the fever.
3) Use a humidifier or a cool-mist vaporizer.
4) Elevate your child's head.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have any other question Ill be glad to help.

Thank you for the query.

Take care

I have a three year old grand daughter. She has had a cold for almost a week. She came home from her visit like this. Her cough is like a bark, and her nose is running with thick green, and at night she gets worse. she will run a fever. she will not eat that much, only some fruit. I give her baths and try to get her to eat chicken soup but she will not. I have rub vapor rub on her back, chest and feet covered with socks. She will drink during the day.
