  • I would go to the dr just to make sure he/shes lungs are clear. My son has had a cough and runny nose and it was just a cough but a slight cold. I ran a cold mist humidifyer, suctioned out his nose and used saline nasal drops and I also put Vicks baby rub on his feet and put socks on and it cleared up in just a couple days.
