My 5 year old grand daughter has mucous coming from her nose…

Customer Question
My 5 year old...

My 5 year old grand daughter has green mucous coming from her nose and we're constantly blowing the boogies out and she wakes up with green on her eye lashes and now she has green discharge on her panties. She doesn't cough a lot but constantly has mucous build up in her nose. I see on the website that mucinex DM is recommended, but is it ok for a 5 almost 6 year old too? (she'll be 6 in April

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Gynecologist should know?

No she's 5

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
