6 month / Nebulizer

Hi doc, my liitle one is 28 weeks and has a stuffy nose. Drinks with difficulty and doesn't really want to eat. I give her Accu flue pain meds, saline nose drops and uses ahumidifyer in her room. My question can i use a nebulizer and if yes, what meds do I need to use. She doesn't cough, only when her nose is so stuffy.

I have no information on Accuflue and cannot tell you if it is safe for a baby of 7 months.Your baby's main problem is a very blocked nose that is not relieved by using the usual treatments which should be effective. A nebuliser will not be of benfit here. You need to find out what is causing her to have such a very blocked nose that nothing seems to help. She may have enlarged adenoids. Please ask an ENT specialist to see her so that a definite diagnosis of her problem can be made.
