My daughter is five months and has had a cough for months and I was told a ¼ of a tsp of Dimetapp was fine because she has no fever but now she is fussy, running nose and sneezing. What do I do?

Do not give any cough or cold medications to young children without being instructed by a pediatrician. The FDA does not recommend these products for young children.
