Q.

Sick (Nose &  Chest)

Good day docter, my 2 year 10month old baby girl started getting a snotty nose and cough yesterday afternoon. Nothing was wrong before. Is there anything i can give her so to stop it in it''s tracts? Some say Flusins S? When she gets the flu she always ends up with a very snotty nose &  nasal drip and a bad chest wet cough.

At this stage your daughter has a cold and the mucous running back from her nose is causing a post nasal drip and her cough. You should give her Panado or Calpol for fever and try to get her nose to clear by using Sterimar nasal spray twice daily in her nose.
