Constant blocked nose

Hi Doc,

Since my daughter started creche 3mnths ago, she has since been battling with a cold that will clear for a week and then comes back.she doesnt run a fever or anything and shes active during the day but severely blocked at night. Im giving her creche guard,scolts emolsion and gummy vites vitamins and also using sterimar for her blocked nose. is there anything i can try? it really pains me to see her being sick all the time.

It looks like you are going to have a difficult winter if your daughter is having repeated colds at a relatively good time of the year. The winter is coming and respiratory virus infections will be on the increase then. You are already doing virtually everything to prevent your daughter being ill so often,but the infections seem to break through in spite of of the immune boosters and vitamins she is on.It would be a good idea to consider keeping her at home for this year

Hi Doc - My son is and suffers with this ongoing weezy chest and blocked nose. I cannot give him Desselex or allergex to the antihistomy in them. He had a terrible ellergic reaction to the allergex wich hospitalized him last time. All Im asking is there any thing else that I can give my boy to relieve the congestedness and the on and off coughing.
