Possible sinusitis: You may have a sinus infection. Patients with chronic rhinitis and allergies can develop congestion which lead to blockage of the sinus openings in the nose. This can lead to fluid build up in the sinuses, pressure, headache and possible infection. You should see your physician for evaluation. Best wishes.

How do I get rid of my 6 month old's nose congestion problem?

Several options: Before six months of age, bulb syringe and saline good choice. Also, cool mist humidifiers, especially at use during sleep may be helpful. After six months of age, I have prescribed zyrtec (cetirizine) with good results. Talk to your pediatrician for help in this regard.

How can I get rid of my one year olds snotty nose and congestion?

Keep it simple: I would try using a cool mist humidifier in the bedroom and use Normal Saline nasal drops as needed and suction the nose gently with a bulb syringe. Use the bulb syringe only if absolutely necessary otherwise vigorous suctioning can irritate the nasal mucosa and cause more congestion. If this does't help and the child is having difficulty breathing, sleeping or feeding I would then try medication.

Is there any way to get rid of ear congestion? I am still getting over a really bad cold, and my ears have been congested since saturday. Is there anything I can do to help get rid of the congestion?

The: The short answer here is an over the counter decongestant like sudafed. Obviously you should read the instructions and make sure you have no contraindications to this type of medication before taking it. If that does not seem to do the trick and you have continued ear congestion you should be evaluated by your doctor. You may have an ear infection or other problem going on. Good luck.

I had a chest infection 2 weeks ago and took antibiotics but ever since I've had bad nose congestion. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it?

Mgt: I would recommend nasal saline rinses and keeping the nasal passages clear. If there is still congestion for three weeks, another course of antibiotics to treat a sinus infection can be considered. Monitor your temperature and if there is a fever, please call your physician. A virtual appt is also available.

Nasal vs Chest?: If nasal and something that just started... It may be a viral upper respiratory infection. It could be allergies as well - but less likely this time of year if new onset. Afrin nasal spray is a great decongestant - use no more than 4 days. Over the counter phenylephrine/pseudoephedrine. Plain old saline nasal spary is good as well.

I have COPD how do I get rid of congestion naturally also when do I know that I need an antibiotic?

Depends on Symptoms: You can get rid of congestion by taking medicines such as mucinex, (guaifenesin) which is very safe. Or, if you don't want to take meds, then using a nebulizer with saline can help. Also, simply sitting in the hot shower may help. Signs of an infection are increasing shortness of breath, chest tightness, change in the amount or color of the phlegm, fever, worsening cough. If this happens, then see a doc.

How do I get rid of my 6 month old baby's congestion problem?

Check environment: Babies have a certain amount of secretions and mucus, it helps lubricate the airway. The issue is is it a normal amount or not and whether the baby is bothered by it or not. If you think it is not normal, consult your doc and check your home for indoor pollutants and possible chemicals that may release fumes, such as air fresheners and certain cleaning products. Also check baby┬┤s diet.
