Sick 10 month old...

I know none of you are doctors but just give me an idea if you can. My biggest fear is ignoring the serious.

Dd has had:

-a nasty bad runny nose.
-Clear discharge but what I aspirate and what she sneezes is greenish.
-She sneezes a lot,
-sleeps a lot (1/2-2/3 of the day in 30 min to 3 hour spurts).
-Coughing like a recovering smoker, but no barking just a wet pleghmy cough that is producing most times and shes trying to spit it out.
-eyes red and puffy and watery like she has allergies but it's winter and she's never had allergies before. I bought a new recliner but she was already like this before I brought it home. We have always had the same two cats.

-she's eating, drinking, and peeing and pooping.

Anyway, I emailed this to her dr too but I won't get a response till mondayish. But anyone have a suggestion for helping her congestion and such? She's pretty miserable and no one is getting any real sleep kwim?

Haven't had a baby sick like this since ds 5 years ago.

Hmm I guess all I could suggest is using a humidifier and baby Vicks. And Tylenol for any pain.

Granted I'm not a dr but it looks like either a cold or allergies..........I don't know of anything you can give a child that young.  You can steam up the bathroom and take her in there to see if it helps.........good luck

Not much you can do. Meds are not good for this age. You can actually cause more congestion but suctioning too often. Try taking her in the bathroom and running a steam shower. Sit with her in the bathroom with the door shut, read to her etc. And just hang in there.

She's a bit young to wait that long for an appt. Can you get her to see her dr on a walk in basis? I would be concerned about some sort of chest infection.

Bump:

Can a child spontaneously develop allergies?

You can develop allergies at any age.  My husband never had seasonal allergies until about 5 years ago.  So yes it is possible it is allergies.
