Q.

Post Nasal Drip

We have some kind of allergy in the family (Dust/Pollen and so forth) it seems as if my son 3 years and daughter 11 month have inherited this. Everytime they are sick I am told it is caused by post nasal drip. My big worry is my daughter this is now the second time in 2 months that she has tonsilites, how can I stop the post nasal drip. They are on antihistamines permanently. And we are using Inflanaze as well. Saline drops just make their noses more runny. And trust me it doesn't stop, it just keep on coming.

You will need to use decongestent medicines for your children. They are not very effective for long periods, but should relieve the immediate problem. Try Rinex Syrup and see if it helps them.
