– [Narrator] Tips to Grow by is sponsored by Akron Children’s Hospital. – I’m talking to Dr. Raizman
about the common cold. – The cold can actually
last up to two weeks. For nasal congestion, we
want to use nasal saline and run a humidifier in our child’s room. You can also take them into the bathroom and run the steam in the shower and that will help decongest them. Honey is wonderful for coughs and for sore, scratchy throats. We can use Tylenol or Motrin for headaches, muscle aches and fevers. And stay hydrated.
