Child has a blocked nose

My child of 9 months who suffers from sinus, has a blocked nose for sometime now. what can i do

Babies do not have sinuses. Your baby's sinuses have not developed yet. Something else must be causing his/her blocked nose such as enlarged adenoids. Use Salex nose drops twice a day every day to try and clear his/her nose. If it does not clear up it would be best to take your baby to see an ENT specialist.

hi robert, you wont believe this but it works. my gran told me to do so! take a blob of blue seal vasseline and smear it from the top of his head down to the point of his nose in a straight line. you can smear it thick, because it doesn' t burn the eyes. some how it works. don' t know why or try ilidin nose drops just make sure you get the one for his age, i think the one win the pink block is for babies, blue for young children and red for adults.
