I have a sick 8 month old, he's displaying cold symptoms....cough, runny nose, but no fever. I've been thru raising 2 other kids and usually the doctors will tell me "It's a cold, let it run it's course and use over the counter remedies." I have been using Johnson's vapor bath, baby chest rub, children's Benadryl, and have a vaporizer with vicks going in the bedroom at night. The drug stores no longer sell ANY infant cold medicines and the 2 pharmacists I spoke to, one at Walgreen's the other at WalMart, said that all of the infant cold medicines have been taken off the market due to infant deaths. Would I be wasting a trip by taking him to the doctor? It's also VERY cold out and I don't want to get him out in it and risk him getting sicker. Any advice?
