Q.

Mucous and nose block

Good Day Doc

My boy is now 5 months and still does no mucous coming out of the nose, instead he constantly have nose block. Is it serious?
What is safe to use for nose block

Thank you

Paediatrician

Your baby is very young to have such a blocked nose. It is possible that he has enlarged adenoids. Try Salex nose drops used twice a day. If his nose does not open up after 10 days he must be seen by a paediatrician.
