Patient :My 8 month old has the common cold. (Runny nose and cough) he has been doing great all day, not coughing much and not very runny nose. Until bedtime he started to get a few coughing fits, which is normal for nighttime. But what made me concerned was he was very sweaty and clammy while I was nursing him so I decided to take his temp. It was 97.2, is it normal to have a low temp and clammy/sweaty skin with a cold??
