When to use illiadin

HI doc,
Baby has a cold since the weekend, actually its been on and off for a while now. I usually use sterimar spray and we also have the humidifer on at night.
This time the blocked and runny nose is worse as he hardly slept last night.
His mucous is clear and his chest sounds fine, not phlegmy or coughing.
I did use Illiadin infant drops last night and this morning, but I''m not sure if this is actually necessary? can you please advise.
Many thanks - R

This is a good question. Your baby's nose seems to be very blocked with this cold. Of note is that her blocked nose has not improved enough on the Sterimar spray alone and she hardly slept last night. You can use the Iliadin infant drops twice daily for no more than 5 days to try to open up her nose so that she can sleep and feed normally.
