Clear Liquid Comes Out Of The Nose Of A 6 Month Old Baby?
my baby is 6 months 11 days old, it’s been 4 days, his nose is runny, but doesn’t runny all the time, at least 3-4 times a day, his child doesn’t sneeze, doesn’t even have a fever, but when he sleeps he sometimes snores, guess why?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Clear discharge from the nose or colds, especially in infants can cause breathing problems and can cause airway obstruction if the mucus formed is very thick and excessive. Babies do not have the ability to remove mucus from the nose or throat independently like adults so they need proper care and treatment. Some things that can cause these complaints, including allergic rhinitis, a condition in which a person's airway sensitivity is excessive due to an allergic reaction to certain substances or conditions, such as dust, cold air, smoke, animal hair, and so forth. This condition usually arises after being exposed to the precipitating factor. It also can be caused by viral infections, such as influenza, bacterial infections, and so forth. Snoring in children can be caused by excessive amounts of mucus in the airways and is not removed. To reduce complaints, you should give food according to the age and ability to eat the baby, give milk to the baby because breast milk contains substances that are useful for immunity, try to be in the environment with good humidity, it is recommended to take a bath with warm water, give steam from warm water to help thin the mucus, and if the complaint does not improve, it is advisable to consult your child directly to the child's specialist doctor, the doctor will conduct an examination and determine the appropriate treatment.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
