Mucus In The Nose Of 2-month-old Babies?
Good morning. I want to ask my 2-month-old son, he has a cold, but the snot doesn’t want to run out like runny nose, like breathing in the nose, and his breath smells bad, why is that possible?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The presence of nasal mucus in infants is actually a common thing that can occur and can be caused by various things, among the common ones are:
Foreign objects in the nose Viral or bacterial infections of the nasal passages Being in an environment full of dust and pollution Cold air Nasal polyps
In addition, the two-month-old baby also can not remove the nasal mucus on purpose, and that makes the mucus more settled in his nose. Among several ways that can be done to remove the mucus is to suck it, either directly with the mouth of an adult or with a special tool. Our advice for now, take your child to the ENT doctor for further examination and determine the main problems and the best treatment.
Meanwhile, what you can also do is bring your baby to a certain room in the room with you, and put a pan filled with hot water so that the steam can make the air in the room more humid. Then continue to give ASI to your child to support his endurance. So, hopefully answering your question.
