Your child has a runny nose. This is a normal part of what happens during

Q: What causes a runny nose during a cold?
A: When germs that cause colds first infect the nose and sinuses, the nose
makes clear mucus. This helps wash the germs from the nose and sinuses.

* The best treatment is to wait and watch your child. Runny nose, cough,

antibiotics will not make them go away any faster.
* Some people find that using a cool mist vaporizer or using saltwater
nose drops makes their child feel better.
Q: Are antibiotics ever needed for a runny nose?
A: Antibiotics are needed only if your healthcare provider tells you that
your child has sinusitis. Your child’s healthcare provider may prescribe
other medicine or give you tips to help with a cold’s other symptoms like
fever and cough, but antibiotics are not needed to treat the runny nose.
Q: Why not try antibiotics now?
A: Taking antibiotics when they are not needed can be harmful. Each time
people take antibiotics, they are more likely to carry resistant germs in
their noses and throats. These resistant germs cannot be killed by common
antibiotics. Your child may need more costly antibiotics, antibiotics given
by a needle, or may even need to be in the hospital to get antibiotics.
Since a runny nose almost always gets better on its own, it is better to
wait and take antibiotics only when they are needed.
