Blocked Nose
My baby of 12 months is coming down with a little cold. His nose is stuffy and blocked and he felt a little flushed today. Is there anything besides saline drops that I can use to unblock his nose. He won' t let me put any nose drops in. I am giving him Demazin at the moment (as advised by the pharmacist) as well as Karvol drops on his clothes etc but he still seems quite stuffy.
Thanks for your advise.

Do not give your baby Demazin, nor should you use Karvol. Only use Saline nose drops. You always need two people to put drops in your baby's nose, one person to hold your baby and the other to put the drops in his nose.
