Hi Mary,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

A runny or stuffy nose, if not accompanied by a fever, is generally not a serious condition. The most common trigger of this complaint is allergies. The triggers for allergies can vary, ranging from cold, dust mites, animal hair, flower pollen, and so on.

When exposed to allergens, the cells in the mucous lining of the respiratory tract walls will be stimulated to produce more mucus. Therefore, the nose will become runny and often clogged when this mucus thickens. If it is true that your child's complaints are caused by allergies, then by avoiding exposure to allergies, the complaints usually subside by themselves. Try doing the following steps:

Condition the environment around the child to be comfortable, not too cold Dry the child in the morning sun before 9 o'clock to help thin the mucus Keep the environment where the child lives Keep the child away from adults who are sick with colds and coughs Give the child exclusive breastfeeding to maintain his immune system If You express your breast milk, warm it before giving it to the child. Bathe the baby with warm water. However, if the complaint does not improve within 3 days, then it is necessary to think about other possible causes, besides infection, it could also be due to nasal polyps, nasal septal deviation, and so on. If so, check with your child directly to the doctor to get the best treatment.
