This is really a shot in the dark, but....when my allergies are bad I need to make sure I drink lots and lots of water, it seems to make my mucus more runny, but that's good because I don't like that dry feeling.
Also, have you ever done any sinus irrigation like with a bulb syringe or neti pot?? Oh, I just looked again and you're talking about a 7 month old. Probably not an option....
What about finding a saline solution (or making one) without thimerosal and diluting the high-dose nasal spray. That's all a lower dose would be....I wouldn't know how to get the percentages right, but maybe it's just a matter of doing the math?
Or, how about dripping (carefully) some saline solution or even better, breast milk into his nose to loosen things up? That's basically what a nasal spray is doing anyway....
