It would be best to find out the reason for your son's post-nasal drip. Is it due to a nasal allergy problem or is it possibly due to him having enlarged adenoids? If his post nasal drip doesn not worry him too much you can try using a saline nasal spray twice daily. Children like using the new Flo Kids saline nasal spray.You do not need to give him the Rinex.
