my child is 5 months old. why yes, if you lie down while lying down sometimes a white discharge looks like a runny nose
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of runny nose can be caused by various conditions, it can be an irritation of the nasal cavity or it can also be a sign of an infection of the airways. Here are some conditions that can cause complaints to your child, namely:
An allergic condition. Allergy to dust, smoke or other substances can cause the production of secretions / mucus from the nasal cavity to become excess
The presence of a viral infection. But of course this condition is accompanied by other complaints such as fever, cough.
There is irritation of the nasal cavity due to rising milk into the nasal cavity.
There is a blockage in the airway, for example due to dirt, clogging due to accumulated dust
Presence of other infections.
If your child's condition has been going on for a long time, it is necessary to do an examination to find out the cause of your child's complaint. Conditions that are too long can cause respiratory problems in your child. In addition, it is necessary to know whether there is an allergy to a certain substance, such as dust. Avoid exposure to dust or smoke such as cigarette smoke to prevent irritation of the airways.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
