Pead please help me. Constant block nose and a wet cough.

Please help me??????
My little one is 1 year old and sinse she was 2 months old she has been getting this blocked nose and flem on the chest.
She has been for x-rays but there is not mutch showing on the chest. We are at the physio at least a week every monthe and I hate it.
It is as if she is allergic to something that gives her a nasal drip but she now resently went for blood test and everything shows negative.
What must I do. I can't keep on going to the physio every monthe and I hate antibioticks.
She is in a cresh but for 2 weeks she is healthy and then all of the sudden she starts cougthing and the nose is bloked or run like hell.
She is now sick again. I use Iliadin drp and then the next course I use Euphobium and then also Salex.
What can I give to her to dry up the nose the nasal drip as soon as it starts before it gets to the gest.

Thank you

She is adjusting to the various viral infections she is exposed to. She will grow out of this pattern with time but you will need lots of patience with her. Only use the Salex drops and use them 3 times a day every day even if she is well.If she attends a creche think about keeping her at home.

I have posted a similar mail this morning. My daughter is now 2 yrs old & has the same problem. I've used Demazin, Rhinex, Celestamine, Alletex, Euphorbium, Salex, Iliadin, Sterimar & the list goes on. STill the runny nose & wet chest continues.

Erna, if you find a remedy, PLEASE let me kow. I am also tired of the doctors visits every week or so, antibiotics, etc. The post nasal drip makesmy daughter throw up a lot. I have also wondered if it is an allergy, but the doc says she's fine.

Have you tried a decongestion syrup like Coryx or Demizine or even dimetapp. That works for my son. You can give it for a course of 1 week and only at night. If not cleared by then, need to see doc.
