Q.

Runny nose

Hallo Dr. My LG is 17 months old. She had flu about 2 weeks ago. Since then her nose keeps running. It is a clear watery discharge. she doesn' t have a fever and eats well. She doesn' t look sick in any way. She does attend daycare. The pharmacist gave me Otrivin that helped but you can only use for 7 days. They also gave me flu meds like flusin C. It helps but the moment I stop it the runny nose is back. I' m giving her reuteri drops 5 at night and Viral gaurd as well as the eachinae chews from TLC. What can I do more?

All you need to do and this is the safest as well is to use Salex nose drops twice a day in her nose until she is better. Do not give your little girl any other medicines.
