Q.

PROLONGED USE SINUMAX

My 1 year old suffers from an allergy (bloodtests could not determine what for) which causes a constant runny nose. Paed refuses to give something to clear it and only gave an anthihistamine that she takes 2 twice daily (for the last 6 months) but makes no difference. She recently had a sinus infection and our GP prescribed Sinumax along with antibiotics and this seemed to clear the nose. As soon as I stop giving the Sinumax the runny nose starts again. Can I continue to use the Sinumax on a daily basis or not? Is there any other over the counter meds that I can use for the runny nose on a prolonged basis? Have no med aid. and don't want to continously take her to the doctor just for a runny nose. She has no other problems and is a very healthy child.

You cannot keep on with the Sinumax for a prolonged period. Please just use Salex nose drops twice a day every day until her nose clears.
