18 week old doesn't have runny nose but sounds congested for past 10 days. Chest sounds fine (I think) Tried humidifier & saline drops. What can it be?
Baby nose: As babies face and head grow early in life, the nasal passages can actually narrow out a little bit. Since the nasal passages are so very narrow to start with in infants, a little bit of additional narrowing can lead to a lot of noise. He (or she) will outgrow this as face fills out in the second half of the first year. Nothing to worry about as long s no other symptoms and eating fine! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not usually: Most allergy-related symptoms are sneezing, dry cough, watery eyes, itchy eyes or throat. If you have an asthma component to your allergies, you can get wheezy or be short of breath. A nasal steroid can be very helpful in treatment and prevention of symptoms since it works right where your body reacts to the antigen. Non-sedating anti-histamines are helpful if steroid spray alone won't do it! ...Read more
