Post nasal dripping, runny nose (clear mucus), vomiting after eating (mostly mucus),

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

3days. No trouble breathing

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Low grade fever (on and off) no prior illness or allergies. Patient is 3yrs old.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,you should give him nasal saline spray initially.

Also give him OTC Liquid Emetrol.

You can give him OTC Nasonex nasal spray once a day.

Also use a humidifier in his room.

Elevate his head while sleeping.

Hydrate him with Pedialyte and warm liquids.

Give him steam inhalation with keeping him in your lap.

You should give him OTC Children's Tylenol.

If his symptoms'll persist then see him to doctor for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
