  • Looks to me that your kid has a healthy Immune System .You as a mom know when its time to call a DR .As long as he doesnt get a fever or it interrupts his breathing then there is no need .Make shur his airways are good thow .use home remedies as help chicken soup,orange juice,lemon juice .keep him hydrated .your a good momma for being concerned

  • i would wait it out, unless he has a bad fever, the cough sounds awful, or the runny nose is a weird color. otherwise, when kids are sick they don't act like us (at least the ones i know) they just keep going.

  • if its green i would take him in. sometimes green is a sign of a virus so he may need antibiotics. usually when i've called a night nurse she'll ask if the discharge is clear if not they tell me to go ahead and come in just to make sure its not a virus. so i would go ahead and give them a call in the a.m. just to be safe.
