    runny nose

    my baby has had a runny nose for about a week. She had her shots last week and was also running low-grade fever for a couple of days. should i be concerned?
    Emma_WebMD_Staff responded:
    Baby's get colds just like we do, I am sure one of the experts might chime in but I think you have nothing to worry about. If the symptoms get worse and the fever comes back and a bit higher you might take your little one to the doctor but, just a bit of a runny nose shouldn't be much to worry about.

    Good luck!

    Hi purpleflute -

    I'd be curious to know how old your baby is and what temperatures you are measuring.

    While it may not turn out to be much more than a cold, a call to your ped can help determine if you should go on in for a check or just wait it out at home.

    Hope that helps.

    Dr. Dan
