In brief: See pediatrician

You may need a rx nasal spray or an antihistamine with a decongestant for the 23 month old.
Whereas saline spray may be helpful, humidifier may do more harm than good by fostering mold and dust mite growth.

In brief: Consider Nasonex (mometasone)

May need a nasal steroid like nasonex (mometasone).
May need an evaluation by an allergist.
