Your little baby has caught a cold from her older sibling.The safest treatment for a blocked nose in a bay of this age is saline nose drops. Try using Salex nose drops at least twice a day.If she does not improve you can use Iliadin paediatric nose drops for no longer than 5 days

take your kiddies to the pharmacy, they will also be able to help as to what to give.
I know demazin can be given for blocked nose, and alleregy
and flusin.
