Your baby has a cold which is caused by a virus infection. This usually takes 5 to 10 days to clear up by itself. You have been given a strong cortisone and antibiotic nose spray. The antibiotic in the nose drops is called Neomycin which cannot help for a virus infection like a cold. The cortisone in Betnesol N is called betamethasone. It is the incorrect treatment for a cold and is absorbed from the nose into the baby's body.All you need to use is infant saline nose drops twice daily such as Salex nose drops. This will relieve your baby's blocked nose and is safe.
