Q.

no mucus

Good Day

My 7 months baby still does not have any mucus, his nose is dry, is it even normal?

I" m worried, should I take him to the doctor or is there some prescription I can get over the counter?

Some babies have very dry noses and this can cause their noses to be blocked with dry crusts of mucous which you may not be able to see. Use infant saline nose drops at least twice a day.Try Bennetts Infant Saline nose drops and this should help your baby son a lot. Use a humidifier in his room at night if the air is dry during the winter months in your home.
