Hi Heba
There are some other medicines like cetrizine syrup which you can use.
The child will get over this as he grows.
Just rule out a condition called partial or unilateral choanal atresia if the block is really bad.
Get a second opinion.
No need to panic!Good luck

Pediatrician Dr. Y V Siva Sankara Murty's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

If there is continuous blockage of nose and difficulty in breathing you should contact your doctor once.
Blocked nose for such a long time requires other diagnosis to be considered.

Is your baby other wise active or not?
Is there any discharge from the nose?
Is she having any fever?

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
