Hi. My son 4 1/2 has recently started to get a really stuffy nose; worse at night for sure. So bad that sometimes he wakes at night crying b/c he can't breathe. We live in AZ, so I am not quite sure exactly when the allergy seasons are here, I suspect this is a combination of environmental allergies (hay fever, I have it bad) and food. As well I do recall this same thing happened last year similar time.
And, Yes, he eats dairy, and Yes, I am taking him off it completely for an entire week as a test. Am hoping that this will do it, but in the mean time what the heck can I do to alleviate the nose.
I have tried Olbas Oil Inhaler (he claims it burns his nose), homeopathic nose drops, Netti pot (as best I can with a squirmy 4 year old) and am trying so hard to avoid the OTC meds.
Any suggestions in addition to any known foods outside dairy that tend to cause nasal issues?
