Compliments to you Doc &  everyone on this forum.

My baby is 7months now, she' s teething but the problem is she having a flu (blocked nose) and refused to eat and always scratches her face. I don' t know if this happens because of the teething, i got some advice to give medicine called QUMA but seems it doesn' t work i also use TEEGEL. Please gime some advice.

Thank you.

Thank you.You must help your baby to clear her blocked nose which is due to a cold. So use saline nose drops such as Salex nose drops twice a day every day until her nose is nice and clear again.Do not use any other medicines. You can use the Teejel on her gums for teething.
