Running nose without fever: Can it be Bronchitis?

Shishira - posted on 11/01/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




My 3.5 years toddler has running nose (actually mucus comes when she sneezes) since a month or so. She does not have fever though. Other than that she is active, plays and goes to school. She is always a picky eater and does not like to eat even these days. I have heard from other friends that there is a risk of bronchitis if there is running nose for long. So, I am not sure if I should take her to doctor in this situation.

If she has no fever, no cough, is eating and drinking enough and is actively playing etc, then it sounds like this is likely to be an allergy.

You could call your doctor's office to speak with a nurse and find out if they would like to see her, but in the first instance they are likely to get you to buy an over the counter children's allergy medicine.
