  • Nothing but rest and fluids will get rid of the cold, it's a virus that needs to run it's course. A humidifier really helps as well. All you can do is treat the symptoms, oh and by the way, colds aren't bad, I know it's hard to see your child sick, but colds and virus and germs are the best way to build up a healthy immune system. So just give her lots of TLC, make sure she takes in enough fluids, and this will go away on its own. :)
