What to do now?

Hi doc,

I wrote to you last week about my daughter, since then i have taken her to the gp who told me i was treating her correctly with the prefem,texa,eye drops, saline and naselex and singular, but those can only be given for 5 days which has gone by and there are no improvements what so ever. Her eyes are back to getting the goo in them, her nose is running alot, she still has her cough and this morning she woke up saying her ear is sore. At the moment i am treating her with singular in the evening, saline whenever i hear her nose is blocked as it goes between block and very runny and the gp gave a all natural cough mixture made from ivy leaf and im back to using the eye drops. Is there anything else i can do for her because she just doesnt seem to be getting better and i kept her out of creche for the whole of last week in hopes that she would get better sooner but i am unable to take more time off and keep her home longer. Is there any advice you can give me to make my little girl feel better. And she is on creche guard multi vit, she does not have a time or has had a temp at all and she is 20 months.

Your daughter has a very bad cold which has also affected her eyes and chest and now it appears that here ear may be infected. Your main aim must be to clear her nose so concentrate on the nasal saine nose drops and use a nasal aspirator such as the Nosefrida to clear her nose of mucous. Continue with the Singulair at night and with the eye drops. Stop the Texa and the Prefllam as well as the Naselex.She will get better as her body fights this viral infection. Keep up with the Creche Guard and also give her a probiotic for 10 days to boost her immunity.
