Thank you.You baby son appears to have a cold and a chest infection known as bronchiolitis.This illness is usually caused by a virus known as RS virus infection. Children who attend a creche and who are big babies are at special risk of catching this infection.Keep your baby's nose clear by using saline nose drops such as Salex drops twice a day.You can suck the mucous from his nose if it is very blocked with a special suction device [ask your pharmacist] You can nebulise him twice daily with the Duolin and saline if you notice that he is wheezing[whistling sound] This illness usually takes 7 to 10 days to clear but unfortunately some babies become re-infected quite often especially during the winter months.
