Runny Nose

This will be the death of me! My 9 mo. old has had a snotty nose for 3 weeks! The dr. says it's a virus and treat the symptoms! He has just started school and there's new germs and I know it's allergy season- but how can I help my little man?! We've tried: benedryl, humidifier, vaporizer, we suction is nose 50 times a day with saline drops... None of it's working he still has a stuffy, runny nose. The snot is yellow in the morning and it lightens throughout the day, but it's not clear. Any home remedies or other things we can try?

Claritin Side Effects with Toddlers

Has anyone given claritin to a toddler and experience behavioral side-effects? My 2.5 year old has been taking Claritin for a little over a week and has been acting up much more than usual (e.g., throwing things and hitting). I realize that some of his behaviors are typical 2 year old behaviors, but his behavior definitely seems to have changed since starting the allergy medicine.

Claritin and Other Allergy Meds

My son often gets runny nose/cough symptoms and my pediatrician has recommended that I try putting him on Claritin to manage those symptoms. I am reluctant to put him on medicine for prolonged periods of time. Dose anyone have information about any potential harmful effects of long-term use of allergy medicines in toddlers? Also, any suggestions of natural remedies that have worked would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Sore Throat

About 2 1/2 weeks ago I had cold...cough, sore throat, stuffy nose. I recovered from that pretty quickly, but since I have had a terribly sore throat. It's much worse in the mornings and in the evenings (before I ever go to bed). It's not a scratchy kind of sore, but like a lump stuck there. Crazy thing is, it may move from the left to right side daily!!! From looking at my throat-as best I can-, I don't see that there's white patches, that it's red or evn swollen. It's kind of started worrying me a little as I used to smoke for years...
