Blocked nose and squeaky voice

Good Morning Dr.

i have a 4 month old baby girl. She is suffereing with a very blocked nose and has now 2 days ago developed a squeaky voice. i have been using Sterimar baby and that works till about an hour later then her nose is blocked again. i have been giving her since Saturday night Sister Lillian''s Muco Care tablets to see if that will help but hasnt made a difference. She is also not drinking as much as she use to.

Please help.

Thank you

Nadine

Paediatrician

It seems that your baby girl has a very bad cold and probably has croup as well. She is not responding to simple treatment measures. It would be best to ask your paediatrician to see her as soon as possible.Even better seeing that she is having difficulty in feeding due to her blocked nose would be to take her to an after hours paediatric unit tonight.
