    Lots of good suggestions…..personally when my son went through an I hate medicine phase, I used a dropper and got my husband to hold him while I placed it as far back in is mouth as possible without making him choke. The liquid was so close to the back of his throat, that swallowing it was a reflex. That was when he had a fever, which are dangerous left unchecked. But as far as a cold, if nothing works, remember that the medicine does not actually cure the cold. It only allieviates the symptoms. Some proffesionals even discourage giving medicine for a cold because they say it actually slows the process of getting better. All that coughing and the runny nose are the bodies way of flushing out the germs. If you stop the body from flushing the germs, then they stay in the body. Having said all that though, I totally understand wanting to give your child medicine to allieviate the suffering. I do myself! Although I try to keep it to a minimum. But just wanted to let you know so that you are aware that medicine for a cold is not really necessary. In fact as we speak my son is battling a virus. He has a cough, runny nose, and a fever. SInce I cant give him medicine for both the cold symptoms and the fever, his doc said, treat the fever, and let the cold take care of itself.
