Thanks for choosing HCM.
I sympathise with your plight.
Please try using Saline nasal drops along with the cold medication given by your doctor.
The inhalation is quite safe.
The cold & other allergic symptoms could give a lot of trouble for the tiny baby for a few months. Also please get the blood counts done to see if any eosinophilic tendency in your baby.
Please feed warm liquids & keep the baby protected from cold weather like air-conditioners,rains etc.
Prevent any body smoking near the baby.
Take care.
