Q.

nose blockage

HI my daughter is 6 months and her nose has been blocked for the past few 4 days especially at night and sometimes during the day its fine and at night would be blocked. I took her to a GP and he recommended kavol it helps for a while and then it will get blocked again. Should I be worried and what can I do?

She sounds as if she has a bad cold. I do not like using Carvol in young babies. Keep her nose clear with infant saline nose drops twice daily and if she is very blocked use Iliadin Paediatric Nose Drops twice daily as well but only for 5 days.
