Nasal Drip

My daughter of 2 years 6 months is suffering from Nasal Drip, this year alone she was admitted 3 times in the hospital. Currently she is taking Asthma treatment (pumps), singular, Dexelex and nasal spray, all this will work for few weeks and she start coughing terible at night, eventually even during the day. I took her out of diary product and there was great improvement, her nose was not blocked anymore and the coughing has stoped, but I''ve noticed that lately the block nose are back and she started coughing again. So I am starting to think that this will never go away, I want to find out if will she ever outgrow the nasal drip? because it seems like even the medication is not helping even the antibiotics works for two weeks and after that she is sick again.

It seems as if your daughter is getting one infection after another. Is she at a creche because she seems to have the symptoms of the so-called 'creche syndrome' where children get repeated infections from other children attending the creche? It is essential to keep her nose clear by using Salex nose drops twice day. Keep her on the other medicines you mention here as well Also boost her immunity with Creche Guard daily.
