I took my 2 yr old to the doctors and she said the inside of his.nose is congested, swollen etc. So she gave me a perscription for nasal spray. I know.he has a lot of fluid from there.to.hos ears because he was complaining about it, ears looked fine though. So, what can i use for his nose that is more natural?

Saline spray works wonders. Or a netti pot

I hate nasal sprays. They always make my throat end up hurting...lol. Bump for someone that knows what to use.

 Not sure if he eats dairy but try cutting this out while he is sick/congested.

Maybe find a solution with Epsom salt, it's good for swelling. But you have to get the dilution right so it doesn't burn, Maybe use it on yourself first if you make it.

Did she say WHY it was swollen?

I'd be more concerned with a medical practitioner who treats symptoms without trying to find the core issue...

I would try a chiropractor. It may be a drainage issue for misalignment. A non-crunchy friend if mine had her 15 month old on her 5th round of antibiotics for general congestion and an ear infection...she finally asked for some natural help. Her dd was unstuffed after the first adjustment. :)

I would try the saline like others have suggested.
