Q.

Itchy nose

Good day Doc
My son is 8.5 months and he is always scratching his nose as if it is itchy. Sometimes when breathing, he makes the snoring sound, not because his nose is blocked but it seems he is releaving the itchyness. Is this something to worry about?

Paediatrician

Yes it is possible that your baby has an allergic nasal problem. He may be allergic to a food such as milk or something in the environment such as a cat [if you have one] He should be seen by a paediatrician with an interest in paediatric allergies.
