Infant with fever, cough with phlegm, running nose, goopy eyes. No improvement with Tylenol. What can be done?

Hi, I have an 11month old who did have a fever , but it broke with some Tylenol . She has a phlegmy cough , running nose , and her eyes are starting to get goopy. I m trying my best to keep her hydrated, and I give her Tylenol at migt before she goes to bed, but she doesn t seem to be getting any better. She had a fever and cough about 5 days ago. Should I take her to see a ped?

If its phlegmy cough, then most probably an infection in the lower respiratory tract. it will need treatment with anti biotics and its better to see u r ped rather than trying to tide over with tynelol.

hope this helps
