    a virus IS an infection but I know what you mean, I think! in case baby need antibiotics.

    Unfortunately most cough and colds are viral and there's nothing you can give apart from calpol and TLC! That's why doctors say viral because most likley it is!! And you can't really test for the millinion and oine virusus about.

    Babes at this age (under one) and at this time of year seem to have colds all the time. Frustrating!

    But keeo your chin up and watch for the sign of something more serious (the GP should have told you)

    Not feeding
    Not weeign as much
    Temp that wont go down with medication
    Rapid difficult breathing.

    good luck hun, hope your baby better soon

    i had this problem with ewan when ever i took him in with a cold and a cough they would say viral, but then i would end up going back in a couple of days seeing anothe doctor because he now had a chest infection! the same doctor has done it 3 times now so i refuse to see her.
