My 15 month old is sick for the first time. He woke up with itchy watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, fever 100.5, and is slightly congested. What can I expect? What can I do to make him feel better? Thanks!

If he does have a fever you can give him motrin, or tylenol to help reduce it. Also, popsicles. it will help him stay hydrated and help him cool down.

If his eyes are itchy, often that is an indication of allergies. Sometimes you can even have a fever with it. Either way, get a cool mist humidifier in his room to keep everything moving and it will help him be more comfortable during the night.
