Q.

SNIFFING

MY 4 1/2 SON HAS STARTED SNIFFING MOST EVENINGS WHEN WE GO TO BED. WHEN I ASK HIM TO BLOW THERE IS NO MUCUS. I WAS W0NDERING IF THIS IS SINUS AND HOW IS THE BEST WAY TO TREAT IT?

This is not sinus. He may have a nasal allergy. If the nasal mucus is clear and watery then an allergy is very likely. Try an antihistamine syrup such as Allecet 5ml at night and see if he improves.
