Hey everyone. I have a 16 month old boy who has a bit of a runny nose. He has had it for almost 2 days now and i want to help to try and get rid of it. I have tried rubbing a little bit of vix under his nose. Baby panadol work but only for a little bit i only use it when he cant sleep because of it. He is a thumb sucker and sucks his thumb when he is asleep. Any hints on how i can help get rid of it?? All comments welcome.

There is not much you can do to get rid of a cold . It has to run its course and all you can do is make your son as comfortable as possible until it has run its course . If you can get him to drink lots of fluids might speed it up a bit to help him fight it off a bit and I wouldn't force him to eat during this time if he is not hungry but other then that , I don't beleive there is much you can do . Take Care , there is nothing worse when you little one is not feeling well :)
