Q.

6.5 months and a cold

Hi Doc, My son started having a running nose on thursday and the started coughing on friday, and has a blocked nose. I' m giving him Panado and Salex drops for his nose.Last night while coughing he vomited. I also realize that his gums are swollen and he seems to be scratching a lot(i use Vidol for this). Should i take him to the Paed or the cold will get better?
Thank you kindly

This seems to be a bad cold. He is also teething. You are doing exactly the right things. The main thing is to keep his nose clear of mucous with the Salex.
