My son is almost 3 months old and has been suffering with a cold for 2 weeks. I've tried giving him Pedia-care and now Mintex PD Liquid. The Mintex is not doing anything to help him. What is in it and is there anything else I can try to give him to break his cold? Please help me! I hate seeing him suffer like this.

Saline drops are great for blocked noses in little babies - give before a feed so that the nose is clear while sucking. If the cold has not cleared after a few days, it is worth taking your son to see the doctor. A cold is a viral infection (which can only be treated symptomatically) but can often turn into a bacterial infection which is best treated with antibiotics.
