  • Hello, Im a pediatric nurse. Now green means a serious infection needing antibiotic therapy. If she has a fever of 101 or more then take her to
    Dr soon as you can. For now you need to give her pleanty of fluids as much as she can take. Also give her motrin according to her wt. it's an anti-inflam and will help. Remember Green ( G ) =Go to Dr.

  • there's no fever or anything..just the green nose. i know it's the beginning of an infection when the nose starts running, i noted that the other day. but it got green yesterday. that's the only thing though. i'll push the fluids and keep an eye on her the rest of the weekend. thanks :)
