Re: Green snot=antibiotics?
Flu comes on fast. And a cold comes on slow. That is really the only way to tell. 2 DAYS, I dream of illnesses leaving so quickly!
I've been told over and over by Dr.s that you need to wait it out 2 weeks before taking antibiotics.
Best thing you can do is use this cold as a great way to teach about properly blowing a nose, throwing away a tissue, and a germ lesson. You can put cinnamon on your child's hands and then have them wash it off, to give them something visual of what it takes to get the germs off little hands. A get a great book for germ learning we like is "Your Body Battles a Cold"
