  • Maybe nothing is wrong with her. It is hat time of the year where those signs show, it may be spring allergies or her getting the cold often. Try giving her lots of vitamin c among other vitamins. Wait till the summer and if she is the very same way take your concern the doctor again.

  • My DS's ENT is trying Flonase with Claritin on my 4 yr old before taking out his adenoids.... it can't hurt to try the allergy meds to see if it helps. My DS always had a clear runny nose until I started this treatment ... it's so much better now!! It took about 2 weeks to see some improvement.

  • It could be an allergy to casein (milk protein). I thought my son was dealing with allergies BUT it was a cerebral allergy (cerebral allergies are allergies to gluten, casein, soy, corn, and some others things; they typically affect behavior but can have physical symptoms like you describe). Most doctors won't test for these (the testing is called ELISA testing) but you don't have to see a doctor to test it out yourself. My son's symptoms went away after 1 week of eliminating dairy from his diet.

  • My DD use to have symptoms like that before we started allergy meds -- she also had to have tubes, but between the two, she is a totally different child! And I am one HAPPY mom! G'luck!
