Q.

Sinus - Homeo Medicines

Dear Paed

I know that most doc do not prefer the alternative type of medications but I would like to go ahead and ask anyways!

My boy (5 months) suffers quite abit from sinus problems, also from his dad and me who have suffered all our lives and after chatting to a very good friend y/day he advised this is all the reason why he does not sleep thru the night as yet, as he struggles to "breath"! He suggested we use "herbs", I guess homeopathic type of medicine, do you have any suggestions, ideas or alternatives??!!

Paediatrician

Babies do not have any sinuses at the age of 5 month. so he cannot be having any sinus problems! If his nose is blocked there must be another cause. Try infant saline nose drops to clear his nose, if this does not help you will need to consult a paediatrician.Why would you want to use untested herbs on such a young baby?
