My toddler had a cold that turned into a cough about a week ago. The cough has gotten worse in the last few days and he was playing with his ears a lot today. He has not run a fever, although he felt a tiny bit warm last night. He's generally in good spirits, no trouble nursing, etc. Over last summer this happened and I brought him into the doctor - he had a chest infection, throat infection, and ear infection! I was surprised because he had no fever and was happy and playful despite the cough. The doc prescribed antibiotics, which I gave him. I could take him in for more antibiotics again, but I would love to find out if there is another solution. Any suggestions? I'm very new to alternative medicine and know almost nothing, so any advice would be appreciated!
