See Your Doctor: More info is needed before diagnosis can be made. How long have symptoms been present, how often, any nasal allergy symptoms such as runny/stuffy nose/sneeze? Nasal allergy uncommon at this age. Baby’s past medical/pre-natal history, and more is important. Be aware children this age lack verbal skills. Cues to medical symptoms may go unrecognized. See your doctor for proper diagnosis/treatment.
