In brief: Don't assume allergy

If i blow pepper in your face, you sneeze ; drain the same as those with allergy.
I find babies have more congestion with scented cleaning products, perfume, smoke ; other irritants than they do with animal dander or pollens. The tiny nasal passages that become very noisy with a little mucous or swelling gives many the wrong idea. Nasal wash out with saline nasal spray helps most.
