Q.

Cold

My 6 month old baby is due for her immunisation on friday, but now she is having flu, she is coughing, runny nose, from sunday I gave her panado syrup, I would like to know what else can I give her and can I still take her for immunisation or do we need to see the Dr or can I buy her something over the counter

Your baby cannot have her immunisations if she has a cold.Use Salex nose drops twice a day to clear her nose.If she continues to cough please take her to see a doctor.
