  • Yeah. My doctor said to put saline drops in the nose and suction back out. Also run a cool air humidifier, especially in the winter.

  • My son is 3mths and it all started at 1mth took him to the dr and I was told to use saline drops and humidifier and it has not helped at all and now he has a cough that has gotten worse I am going to take him to the dr tomorrow so hopfully they can do something about it this time around since when he coughs he chokes and I feel so bad for him :(
