Q.

Advise - son

Doctor

Your advise will be appreciated. My son (5) seems to have developed a cold - started sneezing over the weekend and woke up with a nose full of yellow mucous. As soon as he started the sneezing I gave him Dimetapp (also complained of sore stomach so I knew he possibly had a post nasal drip)
Now I''d like to stop the cold before it can turn into broncitis - any suggestions as to what I can use? He doesn''t have a fever as yet.

He uses BrainChild with additional vit C chewables in the winter.

All you need to do is to keep your son's nose as clear as possible. Use Sterimar nasal spray twice daily.
