Q.

Child & Blocked Nose

My 6 year old son suffers from a blocked nose every 2 to 3 months for a couple of weeks. I have tried Flusin C , Dimetapp even Allergex. It gets so bad that I need to give him the syrup to drink and at 12 at night I have to use nasal spray. Is there ANYTHING else that I should try , please advice as we hardly sleep at night
