Our expert says:
Yes using Drixine or Illiadin may lead to a rebound blocked nose if used for more than 5 days and should be avoided. You can try saline nose spray to soften mucous and help mucus drainage. Try using Karvol capsules - a few drops on his pillow may help (do NOT give as medicine - on pillow only) . Avoid decongestants. If all else fails you could try Tinset drops per mouth 1 mg/kg body mass twice daily, but he may need prescription.
If your son is drinking cow's milk, try to avoid dairy, substitute with soya. Also try and see if certain foods or contact with pets trigger the blocked nose. Your doctor can do allergy tests on the most common irritants if needed
