Runny nose help

My 8 month old has had a runny nose for a few days. She's in a room with a humidifier. She's also about to cut a tooth (I see it just under the gums, should cut any time now) - could that be the cause? No fever, occasional cough

  • it could be allergies or just nasal irritation. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

  • Runny noses go hand in hand with tooth cutting. It's like every time they get a tooth, it looks like they have a "cold"...just keep an eye on her and make sure the cough doesn't worsen, but I don't think it's anything to be worried about =)
