tossing and turning

Hi Doc

My 2 and half year old son, has not slept well for the past two days, he tosses and turns and grinds his teeth the whole night, he does not have a feve at night but i was told he had a fever during the day yersterday. he sneezes a lot and when he does watery mucus comes out. my mom says he might be teething,what could the problem be?

This is unlikely to be due to teething. Your son seems to have a cold.If his nose is blocked use Sterimar nasal spray twice daily to clear the mucous from his nose. If he develops a fever then take him to see his doctor as he may have an ear or tonsil infection.
