Hello Yuniar, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
When experiencing a cold (flu), an inflammatory reaction occurs on the surface in the nose, so that it will cause increased nasal mucus production and the occurrence of swelling on the surface which causes complaints in the form of runny and stuffy nose.
This principle also occurs in the tear ducts that actually lead to the nose, with an inflammation reaction in the nose, this channel also experiences inflammation causing a slight blockage to the flow of tears, so that it can cause complaints in the form of watery eyes.
This condition is a condition that is common when someone has the flu. However, if complaints of flu and watery eyes are accompanied by other complaints such as fever, red spots on the skin, eyes become red and others, maybe the complaint is a symptom of another disease.
To help your child sleep more soundly, it is strongly recommended that you take your child to a doctor to help alleviate the symptoms he is experiencing. You are allowed to try to use cold and cold cough medicines that are sold in the market, but if you have seen a doctor, it is highly recommended to use these medicines and use them according to the time specified to make sure the medicine works well.
I hope this helps.
