Brief Answer: Get him examined by an ENT specialist. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing your query. After reading your post, I would advise that you should get your son clinically examined and investigated by an ENT specialist. Sometimes due to enlargement of adenoids, recurrent symptoms of blocked nose and nasal infections occur. You can continue with the medicines prescribed by his Paediatrician. Normal saline nasal drops can help you in relieving his symptoms. I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help. Thanks.
