Teething, cough, runny nose 16 months old

Hello, my baby just started having cold symptoms since yesterday, every time he cuts a tooth (or more teeth at the same time) he gets these terrible cold symptoms, runny nose (tons of clearish/light yellow mucus), sneezes, coughs ... Last night his temperature was 101 but couldnt measure correctly because he kept on moving the thermometer, might have been more, gave him 1 pill of pherrus phos 30, he spit half out.

How can I ease his discomfort?
And how can I give him the pellet as he spits it out.

Thanks

Please give him two doses of Calcarea Phosphorica 30c, 12 hrs apart, and report back.

One dose is made by dissolving one pill of the remedy (or one drop, if you have liquid remedy) in half a glass of cooled, boiled water. Stir it and take one tea spoon from it.

Ok! Thanks

Update: gave him the 2 doses Friday night and sat morning, waited.
He has less runny nose (still has clear and light yellow mucus coming out though), has mucous in throat and still coughing, more at night while lying down although there is a pillow under mattress to keep his head elevated, but also randomly during the day.
Continue with same remedy?
Thanks

If the progress is continuing, don't give any more doses. Wait 24 hrs and then if required give another dose. Keep me posted if unclear.

Give improvement in %
