I am so fed up and disheartened seeing my son with a snotty nose. I keep getting told that it is sinus / allergies. He is now on another medicine - ZETOP - indefinatley. His nose runs all the time and now he has started coughing.
ANY advice, any natural home remedies?? Please.

I wish I knew of quick fix remedies. If a child is truly allergic, skin prick allergy tests may help to pin point the problem. Non-sedative anti-histamines and a steroid nose pump are the most effective medication we have available. It would be best to see a paediatrician with a special interest in allergic disease.

Know how you are feeling. I have also tried everything. In the end I changed to : soy-milk, Deselex, ACC 200. (He is also on 2 asthma pumps ) At last there is no runny nose, no coughing, no problems with ears ! Maybe he is just getting older and his immune system better. Don`t know - Good luck !!!

I have the same problem. I find that Cataro drops of Natura works well to dry the nose. Maybe you must test him for allegies. It can be milk that produce mucus. Good luck!!!
