Q.

Blocked Nose

My baby is suffering from a blocked nose due to teething. It's uncomfortable as she cannot suck her dummy or drink her bottle. She cries throughout the night and gets very little sleep even though she is very tired. Can someone please help me with a remedy for her? She has no fever or anything other than the blocked nose. You can hear how she struggles to breathe with the mucus in her nose. Please advise as we are having endless sleepless nights.

If her nose is really very blocked then clear and open her nose with Iliadin Paediatric nose drops twice a day for 5 days.After that continue with infant saline nose drops twice daily until her nose is completely clear and the problem is over.
