In brief: Saline rinses

Saline rinses work well for anyone; if these are not sufficient talk to your pediatrician or family doc about an inhaled nasal steroid.

In brief: Hunt for clues

Best treatment: be a good detective & figure out the cause if you can.
What time of year? Is it seasonal? Any mildew/mold, dust, fumes, 2ndhand smoke, animals? Or more related to colds? How about dairy products like milk & cheese? Hunt down some clues & sort out the mystery with your doc.

In brief: Postnasal drip

Nasal congestion happens with irritation, allergies and infections.
Something that we can do to help relieve the congestion and therefore postnasal drip is to rinse the area with saline spray or saline in a neti pot. Neti pots are very eastern treatment but they are very effective at cleansing the nose and sinuses. You may want to give it a try. If this is not effective it may merit a drs' appt.
