MORE QUESTIONS RE: 767

PLEASE ALSO TELL ME: WHICH IS BETTER TO NEBULISE HIM WITH: DUOLIN WITH PULMICORT OR ADRELINE? I AM USING SALINE AND NOSEFRIDA IN HIS NOSE ALMOST HOURLY TO CLEAR THE MUCOUS OUT, BUT FOR THE LAST TWO DAYS YOU CAN CLEARLY HEAR THE MUCUS BUT WHEN I USE THE NOSE ASPIRATOR NOTHING COMES OUT? CAN MILK CAUSE HIS BLOCKED NOSE? HE IS ON NAN HA 1 AT THE MOMENT.

You only need to use the Duolin now. Keep up with the nasal saline drops and use the Nosefrida to suck out the excess mucous from his nose. This is an illness cause by a virus called RSV. It usually lasts for at least 10 days, but often it can go on for 14 or even 21 days.Your baby's blocked nose is unlikely to be affected by his milk formula now.
