  • When ours were little I would put them to bed with me so I could be right there in case they needed me. Also I would run a cool mist humidifier.

  • Unfortunately, I have the same issues. I actually use a steroidal nasal spray and an allergy pill. At night, have him use Benadryl.

  • sounds like he has post nasal drip from something. take him to the doctor to find out for sure, but most likely either he will be medicated for a sinus infection or you will be told to put him on allergy medications (which we do, helps keep my daughter from snorting). and of course now i saw this is an adult child? is he snorting drugs? tell him to go to the doctor.

  • Bring him to an Ear, Nose & Throat Dr. He may have a deviated septum or a problem with his adenoids.

  • Hopefully you've gone to the ENT by now. We had the same problem with my son. We went today, and it's all because of his adenoids. I've also noticed that he has an underbite (with only 4 teeth on top and 4 on bottom) but that's actually a symptom of mouth breathing. Does your child have that? Another weird thing...my son sneezes when he eats. I'm pretty sure that's because of his adenoids as well. One quick xray can tell you what the problem is.
