Q.

Runny nose

My 16 month has a constent runny nose each time we go to the Dr we get meds but when it finishes the runny nose starts again, clear mucous, then the cough starts and then the mucous changes to green and we back at the Dr and the cycle goes on!
What can i give her to stop her nose from running, so it doesn''t get worse and to break the cycle?

All you need to do is to use saline nose drops twice daily to keep her nose as clear as possible. She needs her immunity to be boosted.Give her Scotts Emulsion daily and also give her a probiotic for 10 days per month for 3 months.
