Q.

does my 1 year old have an allergy?

she has been blocked up for weeks, thick green mucus, not sure if it''s her milk formula? She is in good spirits and not sick, just runny, blocked, green nose? Many thanks

This is definitely not an allergy but is most likely to be due to enlarged and infected adenoids. Try to clear her nose by using Salex nose drops twice a day.If she is no better after 10 days she should see an ENT specialist.
