Its hard when we see our children suffer, has the Doctor prescribed any other med ?
    Removing sticky nasal fluids with a bulb syringe.
    Using a cool-mist vaporizer to keep the air moist and make breathing easier.
    Providing fluids in small amounts frequently through the day.
    Giving non-aspirin fever-reducers such as acetaminophen. Has he a fever ?
