Runny nose
An_255969 posted:
Daughter has runny nose due to either teething or allergies. Tried different children's allergy medicine but nothing seems to stop. What is the best medicine or remedy?

Here are some tips on treating a baby's stuffy nose (some apply more to congestion, but you may find a method that works for your daughter). If her runny nose persists, if she develops other symptoms of allergies like red, watery or itchy eyes, or if her runny nose develops into more of a cold, you should discuss her symptoms with her doctor as different treatment may be necessary.

Best wishes,

A runny nose is a very common condition that most of the child suffer from by a cold, sinus infection, or allergies. I think you should try a little infant antihistamine as it helps a lot in combo with a saline spray. You can also use a cool mist humidifier, they are helpful too.
