Paediatrician

You need to get a definite diagnosis as to the cause of your baby's runny nose. Is this an allergy or is it due to infection? Ask your paediatrician to see your baby and to tell you what is causing this problem. In the meantime only use infant saline nose drops twice daily until you know what is causing this problem.
