Infant with low energy, cough and cold. Could this be due to teething?

My 15 month old daugther had her year injection 2 weeks ago. Although her apetite is good now, she is uncharacteristically clingy, tearful and has no energy. This has been the case for over a week now. In the last few days she has developed a nasty cough and is suffering from very cold hands at night, as well as weeping eyes. I went to the doctor last week. He suggested it could be a number of things from teething , fallout from her MMR jab, has picked up a virus, a mixture of all these. She doesn t seem to be improving....can you help?

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your child seems to have an viral like illness.

Some children 7 to 10 days after MMR injection , develop viral illness with fever, rash , and features of upper respiratory illness like this.

Nothung to worry and just symptomatic treatment with medication for cold and cough is sufficient.

Oral anthistamines for runny nose and watery eyes and Tylenol if there is fever are sufficient.

Consult your Pediatrician for the medication and this illness will subside within one week.

Hope I have answered your query.
