Q.

baby struggeling for air

please give me some advice. my baby is 14 weeks old, and has cut his 2nd tooth on saturday. for the last 2 weeks, his nose keeps closing up so badly, that you can hear he is struggeling to breathe. I bought iliaden nose drops for babies, and this opens up his nose immediatly, but after a few hours its back to square 1. I know also you are not allowed to use it for more than 5 days. his voice is also very hoarse and when he cries his voice sometimes goes away and his cry is very faint. what should i do, taking him for his 14 week injections tommorow???
