Q.

Nasal Congestion

My 7 week lg has had nasal congestion for the past week and I have tried saline but no suctioning as wellas the nubelizer with Mistabourn but nothing takes that stuffyness away especially at night. Please help as she does not have a fever or seem seek she just strugles breathing.

Thank you in advance.

Paediatrician

Your baby should not have such severe nasal blockage at her age. It is very distressing for such a young baby as she will struggle to sleep and also to feed properly. As she has not responded to simple measures such as the use of saline nose drops she should be seen by her paediatrician.
