    I don't understand. What sort of medicine to you give a 5 month old for a cold!??! Other than paracetemol for a fever, I can only imagine you are talking about antibiotics? Or are you referring to a cough suppressant or something to 'dry up' the phlegm? There's no 'magic cure' medicine for a cold. Perhaps if you were more clear about the type of medicine you have given in the past, people can offer better suggestions.

    strange...i already answered..but i can't see it yet.

    first of all thank's a lot for your advices.

    i think i will try to buy her a nasal spray first.
    today morning i did a massage with warm olive oil after the warm bath...and she really enjoyed it!:)
    she also sleeps a lot today.

    i forgot to say that i usually give her herbal based medicine.
    only in case of fever a chemical one.
    but i think if she would feel too uncomfortable...i would also give something else.

    the doc said that she became sick because of the heat outside...and then the cold in the shopping malls.


    thank's again!

    In the Netherlands my doctor prescribed my then 4 mo son nasal spray for his cold. When after 3 weeks he still had phlegm in his airways, he prescribed an inhaler as well. He mentioned that no other medicines will be given. He wasn't allowed a rub, like Vaporub either.
    I think this is quite common in general, isn't it?
