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. These are not little copies of adult problems, their issues differ
