runny nose

Hi Doc

My 2yr old girl started creche in Jan and for one or two days everymonth she has to stay home because of a runny nose that causes her to have a mild fever. i give her creche guard monday to friday. My question is what can i use besides nasal drops for her runny nose?

Your little girl is already showing the first signs of developing repeated virus infections and colds due to her being at the creche.This is called the creche syndrome. If she already has problems in the summer this is going to be worse in the winter months.Continue with the Creche Guard and also give her Scotts Emulsion every day. Keep her nose clear by using Sterimar nasal spray twice a day. If she has a bad winter and is sick all the time you should consider taking her out of the creche and keeping her at home.
