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

Customer Question

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
JA: OK. The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Gynecologist should know?
Customer: no she's 5
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Gynecologist about your situation and then connect you two.
