  • wipe it. The clear runny nose meens that the body is fighting off germs. When it gets green and the kid has it longer then a week, take them in to the doc. If she has it all the time you might want to talk to the doc about alergies

  • Stop giving the meds if it is just clear runny unless ur doc has her on them for something. my daughter is in daycare when she first started she had a runny nose for a year. Fighting germs keep a bib on and wipe it . Just be happy she isn't sick. You dont want to give her un needed meds they will stop the drainage and can actually make her sick.
