Q.

Nasonex

My son' s new paediatrician prescibed Nasonex to be used once a day for what he suspects may be nasal allergies. Baby is 7 months old. Is it something you would feel comfortable prescribing for a baby his age?

Paediatrician

No I would not recommend this medicine unless your baby has beed proven to have an allergy. Nasonex is a cortisone spray.Try Salex nose drops twice a day and see if this helps him.
