Q.

blocked nose or not?

Hi Doc, my baby is 4 months old on breastmilk. Since yesterday, i think he has a blocked nose, because when sleeping/feeding , there is this " snoring" like sound coming out. And his nose was runny this afternoon. His temparature is normal. Is there anything i can give for this?i used salex drops at night and it got a bit better. I have noticed that his gums are a bit swolen..and are whiter than normal..only where the 1st 2 teeth should appear..could it be teething?

Your baby is teething but he also has a cold. Continue using the Salex drops at least twice a day every day until he is better.
