Q.

runny nose

My 4 yr old daugther has had a runny nose for more than 6 months now, have given her a variety of meds including anti-biotics, but it''s still there.
Had her tested for allergies about 2 yrs ago, came back clean.
Any other suggestions?

Paediatrician

It is still possible that your daughter has a nasal allergy problem.The tests that were done two years ago may not have included the allergen/s that are likely to be causing her symptoms.It would be best to take her to see a paediatric allergist. There are experts in all the main centres in SA.
