Dear Mom

Your baby is most likely suffering from an upper airway infection. You should see your Paediatrician for an investigation, to establish a cause. The problem did not exist before he went to creche, so he is most likely suffering from some sort of infection causing swelling and inflammation in the nose. The adenoidal pad may also have enlarged as a result of this.
