If you take him out in the cool night air for a few min it will help get his nose cleared up.... and the cold does not make you sick so trying to keep him overly warm is pointless.

If your son has a runny nose you can give piriton to dry it up twice a day. If his throat is sore then let him suck on ice lollies this really does work and I was told to do this from my GP. For you if your throat is bad then go to somewhere like Holland and Barrats and by Mahkuna honey losengers they were also recommended by my gp they are very good. Get better soon.
