  • Unfortunately, you shouldn't give over the counter cold medicines to kids under six. If there's no fever, just lots of fluids and maybe some chicken soup. You can use some saline nasal drops if his nose is clogged up. You can also use some vaporub at night. I usually put it on a piece of flannel or a wash cloth and set that on my daughter's chest, as is can be a bit burny directly on the skin. It sounds a little more like allergies with watery eyes. You may want to ask your pediatrician.

  • Nothing. Let his body fight it off, it's not going to kill him.
