A cold or teething?

I am not sure if the clear nasal fluid is due to her getting 2 I teeth in on top or if she actually has a cold? she has been sick only twice in 22 months and this time she isn't as wimpy as last time? But she is coughing now, and has a low 99-100 fever, but she had this when she got other teeth in?

colds and teething symptoms can sometimes mimick each other but if you treat each symptom then you should be ok but if you are worried ask your doctor tof have a look at her. something to take down the temperature is all you really need worry about the rest will sort itself. there is no cure for the common cold and nothing to cure teething all we can do is aleviate the symptoms but always seek m edical advise for the sake of your babies health and also your sanity. as she is 22 months she is ok with icepops and lollies so give her something like to suck on the ice will cool her a bit and also cool the gums and ease them a little is she is teething. i kept the freezer stocked with them for my kids and actualy also the dog because it surprised me that dogs grow new teeth too. i had my daughter and the dog teething at the same time. blessed as i was ha ha
