No fever and he has now had it for 1 1/2 days. Prior was a sinus cold.

He very active, but sounds like the lungs are congested? No cough

Thank you for the input.

The symptoms of lung congestion following sinus cold can be due to an infection. An examination by doctor should be taken. Tylenol can help with fever, pain etc but the precise cause needs to be determined & treatment started.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish his early recovery.
Any query, please ask.
Regards.

Docter,

 

Is there anything we can do at home or over the counter? I need to make an appointment with his docter on Monday.

It is not a good idea to give an otc preparation to an young child of his age without examination by doctor. If you feel his lungs congested I would advise to take an early consultation in an urgent care or ER. Keeping the room warm & humid can be helpful.
