  • No. A runny nose is NOT an emergency. Children's Tylenol. Follow the directions on the bottle.

  • Probably not. What is the fever?

  • How high is the fever? Are there any other symptoms other than fever and runny nose? If not and the fever is not high and just started to present, then I would wait to see if he responds to fever reducers (if he can take them).

  • Call their own doctors..... This is NOT an emergency!!!!

  • More than likely this is a cold. If the fever is below 104 this is not an emergency. Take him to his own doctor on Monday. If the fever is over 102 call the doctor tonight.

  • How high are their fevers? We are no Doctors so how would we know what they have? Don't they have a Pediatrician? Have they ever been to a Dr.? If they have very high fevers then give them Infant Tylenol & CALL THEIR Dr.!

  • Vicks vapor rub, a nice bath and some pain/cold medicine.

  • Call your child's doctor. If the fever is 105 or higher haul them to the ER.
