My son (3 months) and I both started getting sick around the same time (Saturday, 4-6-14) and Sunday he started coughing up a storm, runny nose, watery eyes/red around the eyes and a low fever. Yesterday we took him to the doctor and she said that there is a virus going around and there isn't anything we can do about it except keep the humidifier running, put vapo rub on his feet, and suction his nasal drainage. Well, today I woke up feeling miserable so I immediately went to the doctor and she told me what I was experiencing was just allergies, so she gave me a steroid shot, prescribed some nasal spray and sent me on my way... I am beginning to wonder, does my son sound like he have allergies? Or is it a viral cold? His nasal drainage is clear and his fever is low. Our symptoms are similar, but now I am beginning to wonder if it sounds like allergies? If it is allergies, can he take any medication for it? Or are we just going to have to deal with it like the doctor ordered?
