In brief: ?irritants?

The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages & exposure to dust, fragrences & other irritants are assumed to be allergies.
Baby tries to flush these out of the nose with mucous but this often ends as congestion & produces rattling with breathing. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from baby's environment & this will happen less
