Bad sniffles in 11 month old

What can I give my 11.5 months LO - she has a really runny nose with yellowish mucus, she sneezes all the time and gets a bit blocked at nite. She doesnt have a fever. Looks like she''s got an infection from her brother who came from day-care on Friday with the same symptoms.

Your baby has a bad cold.Use Salex drops twice a day to clear her nose.If her nose is very blocked by the mucous you can use a device called Nosefida to suck the mucous from her nose.
