  • My child has cold (has running nose, chest congestion, cough, phlegm, fever) what should I do?

    Common cold is very common and affects children and adults of all ages. It is caused by a virus and the symptoms include runny nose, cough, phlegm, chest congestion and fever.  In most cases, common cold can be handled at home using supportive care such as

    • Encouraging fluid intake to stay hydrated.
    • Steam inhalation
    • Use of nasal drop if the nose is completely blocked

    But if the child has high fever, severe congestion and cough, has difficulty in breathing, it is better to consult a Pediatrician.
