Cold Medicines Don't Work and Could Be Harmful for Children, Experts Warn
Medicines used in the treatment of blocked noses
should not be given to children, said experts.
Researchers argue that decongestants should
never be given to children under the age of 6.
They said there is no evidence they work for
children and may even be harmful.
They also recommended caution for those under 12.
They said colds will usually clear by themselves.
