Hi y'all
My baby is 5 months and he has a runny nose and a cough, I try keeping him warm but he develops a rash when I put too much clothes on him worst of all he is teething what can I give him to make him better

The rash can be from teething, not from being overdressed. Does he have a fever? Babies, in fact no one, catches a cold by being cold or from going out in the rain or out with wet hair etc. If your doctor give the OK, you can give him the proper dose of Tylenol or Advil for fever and teething pain. If he is teething, he my be drooling, coughing on his drool and have a runny nose too. Hard to tell if it is a cold for sure sometimes. Cooled teething rings or a frozen washcloth for him to chew on can help his gums
