I am new to this forum and seeking some advice. My toddler has been experiencing a constant runny nose for the past few days. I am not sure what could be causing this as we haven't introduced any new foods, and she hasn't been exposed to anyone with a cold. I am looking for some advice on what may be causing her runny nose and what I can do to help her feel better.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer!
I have dealt with a runny nose in my toddler and It turned out that she had developed a sinus infection. Nasal congestion can cause a runny nose in toddlers, and I realized that she had been experiencing symptoms for more than a week.
It's important to take your toddler to the pediatrician for a proper diagnosis, as they can prescribe antibiotics or other treatments to help fight off the infection. In addition, you can try using a saline solution to flush out your toddler's nasal passages, or use a bulb syringe to suction mucus from their nose.
I also found that giving my toddler plenty of fluids, like water, and keeping her head elevated at night helped ease her symptoms. And if your toddler is old enough, try a little warm tea with honey, which can help soothe a sore throat.
Thanks for reaching out, and I hope this helps.
