  • um, that's not a temp...98 is fine. the cough is cuz of the runny nose, just get a nose bulb and suck the snot out of her nose. use saline drops, squirt a couple drops in each nostril, suck out snot with nose bulb. if you have no saline drops, use steam from the shower. put a pillow UNDER her mattress where her head goes so she's elevated, it helps with the coughing while she sleeps.

  • It sounds like a normal temperature, and probably a cold or virus, could be allergies. Make sure she gets plenty of liquids to help throw it off. I'd keep her at home rather than among other people, since her resistance could be down. I'd also kiss her forehead or take a quick temp just to keep an eye on whether she had a fever or not, just for my own information. And I'd check on her at night to make sure she is breathing clearly.

  • Nothing. She doesn't even have a temp. Just keep her drinking.

  • LOL.. She DOES have a "temp" in the sense of the word... we all have a temperature. It's a normal one though, so don't worry. Just keep fluids in her for the cough.
