The Cause Of Children Often Rub Nose And Runny Nose?
good night doctor ..
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically a 2-year-old child cannot effectively wipe the nose, so even if there is a runny nose in his nose, the child will not be able to remove it by wiping. Children will tend to suck and swallow the snot. If indeed you hear a snot that interferes with the child's breathing, you can clean the nose by spraying the child's nose with saline and sucking it with a special nasal suction.
Frequently rubbing the nose and snoting can be a sign of an infection of the respiratory tract (rhinitis or viral sinusitis or bacterial), can also be a sign of an allergy in children (allergic rhinitis). It is better if you pay close attention to the exact time your child rubs his nose and sniffles (for example whether these symptoms are more likely to occur in the morning or at night, occur in certain rooms, when close to certain animals, etc.). If you cannot find out clearly, you can take your child to the pediatrician to undergo an allergy check.
Some things you can do right now:
Try cleaning your house from dust, changing and washing the sheets at home once a week, washing curtains, dolls, and other objects that can store dust and can be washed. Other items that cannot be washed (such as sofas, mattresses) must be routinely vacuum too.
Keep animals in your home away from children for a while, also clean the hairs that fall out and dandruff animals that may be left in your home regularly
Clean the corners of your house and the back of your closet from fungus that might grow
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
