Blocked Nose
My 5 month old suffers from a continous blocked nose. She has been to an ENT who presecribed Otrivin and Inflanaze and Zyrtec (all once at night). In the morning i use Saline or Sterimar in her nose but nothing seems to help.
How can i get rid of her blocked nose as it is affecting her feeding (bottle fed only)

Your baby has not responded at all to usually very effective treatment.This may be because she has a problem with enlarged adenoids. Please go back to the ENT specialist and tell him that all the medicines have had no effect and that I think she may have enlarged adenoids.
