  • see if the doctor can put him on some allergy medicine. my son constanly had runny nose cough where he would cough so much that he would throw up. He no longer has as much problems now.

  • Try a generic kids claritin or zyrtec (not involved in the recall, both save for 2yrs & up - my kids all take both - not at the same time).

  • Find out why is he having a constant runny nose. That is not normal. I hate to see that everyone tells you how to stop the runny nose instead of how to prevent it. Find the cause and prevent it. If it's allergy, get an air filter and improve the immune system with organic whole food products, not fake cheap vitamins from the grocery store. I could give you more advice on prevention, once you determine the cause.
