Q.

Runny nose

My son is 10 months old and what started as a cold is now and endless runny nose. It' s been a month now and the nose has not stopped. He has started coughing and rubbing his ears. His doctor has given him Augmentin 2 weeks ago and Zinnat last week along with Sinumax and Ventese Syrup. Nothing seems to be helping. What can i do? The last thing i want is to end up in the hospital, especially with swine flu going around.

It sounds as if your baby may have developed a problem with his adenoids. His adenoids may be infected and enlarged. It would be best to ask an ENT specialist to see him.
