This is a good question. Paediatricians are against using decongestant nose drops for longer than 5 days at a time in young children because of the possibility of causing a condition called 'rebound rhinitis'. When rebound rhinitis occurs a permanent blocked nose may result which does not respond to the any decongestants in the future.
