Baby Runny Nose
Depends: If he has a cold, there is little you can do for a child of this age. If you suspect an allergic condition (more likely if either or both parents also suffer from allergic diseases) then an otc antihistamine may help.
This is a symptomatic disorder of the nose characterized by inflamed nasal mucosa. Groupings of rhinitis exist triggered by infection, allergy, non-allergic triggers/exposure, meds, immune disorder, and/or structural problems in the nose. Symptoms can include itching, sneezing, congestion, watery/mucoid drainage, post-nasal drainage with sore throat, ear ...Read more
Maybe: Young babies can have allergic nasal inflamation (rhinitis) with constant runny nose. A 6 month old can also have multiple cold during the winter and have an almost constant runny nose from fall to spring. Speak with your pediatrician about the appropriate dose of an antihistamine to use for your baby. If control is inadequate consult an allergist.See 1 more doctor answer
It depends: If her nose has been running just for a few days, you may try nasal rinsing with saline. If she has had a runny nose for a long time and without fever, she may have allergies. Again, saline rinse would be helpful, but that you can try an otc antihistamine such as Cetirizine (zyrtec) syrup 1cc. If the runny nose continues, or requires daily medicine, see y our pediatrician or pediatric allergist.
Swimming: There is no contraindication for swimming in this case. Please be safe while giving your child swimming lessons. Have fun.
Saline nasal drops: And suctioning, if that doesn't help or any other symptom develops, see the pediatrician, enjoy your baby
Cold: Most likely your child has a cold. Most colds last 10 to 14 days. As long as your child is not having any trouble breathing, and is otherwise acting normal, I would let it run its course.See 1 more doctor answer
My 7 month n10days baby has runny nose little bit cough n blocked, his under eyes become bit red. Plz help me?
Red eyes: He may have caught a viral infection that can cause cold like symptoms as well as a viral conjunctivitis causing red eye. Recommend following up with your doctor to make sure he hasn't caught any severe infection that needs to be treated. Viral infections are usually self limited so it will probably improve in a matter of days.
Clear out nose: Newborn infants have to breathe through their noses. So, when their nose is congested with mucus, that mucus needs to be evacuated with a bulb nasal syringe. This typically needs to be done several times a day. If the breathing is still a problem then the infant at this age needs to be seen for evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer

My 10 m baby had clear runny nose and sometimes sneezing since yesterday, how can I cure him naturally or should I taking him to the doctor..
Saline nasal drops: As long as he is not running any significant fever or acting ill (ie. Not eating, very fussy), you can use saline drops and a bulb syringe to clear the mucous from the nose. Put a few drops in, and if he doesn't sneeze them back out in a few seconds, clearing the mucous, then use your bulb to suck out the goop. Monitor temp, activity, intake - but if he's his happy usual self, don't need doc yet.See 2 more doctor answers
