Hello dok. I have a 2 month old baby, my baby is not feverish, coughing, runny nose or flu. But why is his nose often blocked? and if the hand-in-hand is getting increasingly difficult to breathe, I have already taken it to a child specialist, I have been given medicine, but it’s still like I beg for an explanation and how to treat it, doc. thank you
Hello Nanda, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Nasal congestion can be experienced by anyone. Nasal congestion can occur temporary or prolonged, it depends on the cause itself. Some possibilities that can occur include:
Absence of abnormalities. This can occur due to misperception of parents, because your baby is 2 months old, complaints of nasal congestion are difficult to identify.
Allergic Rhinitis. If the cause is allergic, then there will be a trigger for complaints of nasal congestion, for example cold air, dust, animal hair, etc.
Rhintis infection. Nasal inflammation occurs due to infection, usually accompanied by runny, runny green nose, etc.
Septal deviation. Is an anatomical abnormality crooked nasal bulkhead. Can occur due to congenital abnormalities, or trauma.
Nasal Polyps. Sticky stem in the nasal cavity.
Asthma. This is because there are complaints of tightness.
For that, if you have visited a pediatrician, but until now there are still complaints of nasal congestion. The first thing you have to do is try to evaluate the event, or a moment that causes your child's nose to become blocked. After that, if complaints still continue / arise. You can consult an ENT specialist, to seek the opinions of other experts.
That's all my answer, thank you very much.
