Q.

cold or allergy?

when a baby has a cold for longer than a month and things like betnesol, iliadin, saline etc only offer temporary relief or none at all, could we be looking at an allergy or an adenoid situation?
baby is almost 7 months old please please please help, its been too long now.

You are correct to say that your baby may have an allergy or more likely, enlarged adenoids.Please do not use Betnesol drops in your baby's nose as this is a powerful cortisone which can be absorbed from the nose.
