Why we give myteka montelukast sodium to babies ?

Hello doctor . My son is 8 months old. He has suffered 2 times. His nose get blocked and during motherfeed, he felt very difficulty. Sounds comes from his nose and some times he breathed by opening his mouth. my local doctor prescribed during winter season Claritek and Myteka Sachet alont with some cough syrup. He sid that his chest was infected. With 5 days treatment, he got better but Myteka was given about 12 days. After 2 months, he suffered with serious flu . Doctor again recommended same medicine. Claritek dropper for 5 days, Myteka for 6 weeks and one alergic syrup. This time he said that chect is not infected but could be if we dont give claritek. Now he has relief but Myteka is being given. My question is what type of disese he has after few months. I have removed all carpets from my home to avoid dust diseases. Is he has some type of alergy that causes above syptoms after few months again and again. I am confident that he dont have asthma .

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

This presentation can mean an allergic rhinitis with extrinsic asthma, which is generally associated with a secondary viral or bacterial infection casing recurrence

He is on right treatment and this is what is done generally, as he is very young, with age, his immunity will also increase and by 12 years I expect him to be fine if it is an asthma .

continue the steps your taking now to avoid dust, etc and I hope he feeds well . take him for his vaccinations and regular check ups.Avoid exposure to cold climate and keep him clad when he is taken out preventing dust , cold, etc
