I am really sorry that your granddaughter is having difficulty in breathing. It looks like she is suffering from nasal block due to thick mucus. Children usually breathe only thru nose and when it gets blocked, its going to be really difficult especially during night times. Plain saline drops (nasivion
, nasoclear) two drops each nostril
can be safely tried without any side effects. Wheezing
occurs usually along with cough.
Sometimes, adenoids present behind nose which are just like tonsils of mouth can cause nasal obstruction
. But nasal block is not a serious problem to give you sleepless nights.
will diagnose nasal block with thick mucus and prescribe saline drops. Take care.
