Childhood Diseases

We live on a farm (roses, wheat etc.) therefore there is a lot of pollen and chemicals etc used to treat the crops and flowers. My question is: my son, 2 years old, have this runny nose, plegmy chest, coughing etc but he does not have any fever what so ever. I went to the doctors myself on Thursday with throatache etc and i told the doc that i have been getting colds and sinus from last year september (since we moved to the farm) anyway he gave me a celestone shot and told me to start taking a texa every night. I must say i felt better shortly after the shot and i just want to know if my baby doesn' t have any fever but has this persisting nasal discharge and plegmy cough could it be that he is allergic to something in the air. Can i give him natura' s mixed allergen?

It is possible that your son has allergies but children with asthma do not have a wet cough but a dry cough especially late at night.This sounds more like he had a recent cold and chest infection. It would be a good idea to ask your doctor to see him but he must not get strong cortisone treatment such as you received recently.
