You can give your daughter fresh fruit juices as long as it is not cold or refrigerated. Give her plenty of fluids to keep her adequately hydrated. You can give her warm soups that will give her relief. Use a soft tissue to wipe away mucus from her nose to keep her comfortable. Avoid giving your child any medication unless it has been prescribed by your pediatrician. If you are currently giving her multivitamin syrup daily, continue to give her that. See the doctor if the child is endless crying, fever morthan 100C vomiting, drowsy and any sign that feels you abnormal. Regards, Medical Team.

My four year girl having cold, cough and episode of asthmatic symptoms during last two years. She was nebulised with asthalin at the age of six month. However, she was well since then but at the age of three, again problem started. During last one year she had been nebulized three times with three/four round each. Last Nov,2013 she was admitted in hospital for two days for the same problem. So what should I do now?

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?
