Topical treatment: For acute relief, you could try a topical antihistamine like afrin nasal spray to reduce the swelling and congestion. Increase humidity and drink plenty of fluids. Only use the topical sprays max of 2-3 days - longer than this can cause more problems than it solves. ...Read more

My 9yo son has been chronically blowing his nose for days on end. It seems to be posta nasal drip. What is an effective remedy? Will a humidfier work?

Nasal saline: I would try some nasal saline - first. The important distinguishing word here is "chronically." if he has been blowing his nose for nasal drainage for more than 2 weeks... This may be 1) allergies 2) sinusitis (acute/chronic) 3) adenoiditis. Bottom line... If he has had this for more than two weeks.. It's time to think about something other than home remedies - see your pediatrician. ...Read more
