Is there anything that i can give my son for a cold?

He is 16 months and has the worst runny nose for 2 days. Its soo bad. He isn't coughing or anything but he is covered with snot :). I just didn't know if anyone had any ideas on how to make him better?

  • No meds will really help. As long as he's not coughing, I wouldn't do anything.

  • when he is sleeping, apply some honey on top of his nose and between his eyes. Honey has a warming quality and it should clear out his nasal passages over night.
