Q.

Reccommendation

Hi there
My son is 5 months old. He has reflux and is on losec.
He had RSV during the Easter Weekend.
He also has a nose problem. It sounds blocked, but there is no mucous or a lot when we suck it out. He also screams/cries/moans at night when we put him down to bed. He battles to fall asleep. When he eventually does, he sleeps until about 5 and then drinks a bit of milk. Then goes back to sleep. What could be the problem?
Can you reccommend a great paediatrician in the area's between Benoni and Edenvale?

Paediatrician

I suggest you see Dr Marilee Kriel at the Clinton Clinic in Alberton. You baby will find it very difficult to sleep as long as his nose is blocked. Use infant saline nose drops twice daily in his nose to help to clear the secretions until you can take him to see Dr Kriel.
