2 year old

Hello Doc!
Hope you are well!
My 2 year old son has a constant running nose.
We have been treating him with Iliadin and Vibrocil alternativily, on my docs suggestion.
I also spray him with sterimar and Avamys twice a day.
I noticed his nose seems to be bleeding a little, so I stopped the Iliadin and Vibrocil.
I also give him mucospect twice a day, has he has a bit of a cough.
He gets Viral guard, zinplex and vit C in the mornings.
Is there anything else I can give him for the running nose?
He is not sick enough for anti-biotics, he is fine except for the runny nose!

Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much for your time!!

The most likely cause of your son's runny nose is an allergic condition.This is called allergic rhinitis. The medicines with the exception of Avamys will not help your son's nose and to complicate matters, his nose bleeds are most likely caused by the Avamys. It would be bset for your son to be tested for allergies and to be put on to the correct treatment.

So Duran likes $50 a month coverage for a 64 year-old with meciadl condition as say opposed to my $500 a month for a relative low-value Anthem Blue Cross policy for a younger person? Who could have guessed?
