If your kids have a virus antibiotics will not help. If they are running a fever or have diarrea for days - You may want to call or see your Doc. It sounds as their noses are chapped from the cold-poor things-try a little Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) Use a Q-tip or swab to apply it be gentel use just enough to coat the area that is chapped. We have had one nasty virus after another this year and are just starting to feel well again. Our Doc said it is a bad cold year. I hope everyone gets better soon in your home.
