Q.

Sinus treatment

Good morning,

Please can you advise if I can give Allergex to my 5 year old son in treatment for his sinus?
He does not have a fever - so I do not think there is an ifection yet - but has n post nasal drip, and wet cough. Currenlty - I give him 5ml Bronkese and nubelize him with saltwater that I buy from the chemist....this has been going on for 2 weeks...but i was wondering if Allergex might give hom some relieve during the night?

I would not recommned that you give Allergex to your son as it will make him feel drowsy and miserable and interfere with his learning at school. Try clearing his nose by using a Sterimar seawater nasal spray at least twice day.
