Hi, My 5 month old baby who is taking formula milk since birth has been advised to use a Nebulizer with Duolin Rapsules, alongwith other drops like T-Minic and Nasal Saline Water. Since last few days he takes heavy breath, makes whizzing and whistling sound and sneezes for 5-10 times a day. He also was able to drink the milk properly since last 2 nights. My Doctor said that the reason for this condition is because of formula milk, my wife is really depressed because of this and we both wanted to understand if it is true, or this condition can even happen to infants who are on mother's milk. Also, what all things do we need to take care incase of a baby who is in formula milk since birth?

Hi
I completely understand your concerns. Do not worry. The symptoms are suggestive of viral illness rather than formula milk intolerance. So, you may continue with formula milk and treatment as advised.

Take care

Most times when my son wakes up from sleeping he sneezes for almost an hour (sometimes less than that), and has a runny nose. He is 7 and this has been happening almost every morning, there are some days that it does not happen or the length of time he sneezes is shorter. We give him allergy/sinus medication to help, but is there anything else I can do?

doctor1 MD

hi, check if he has developed allergy to anything that is close to his place of sleep- like bed sheet, pillow, dust in curtains around or an air conditioner in the room. if you find none, he needs ENT checkup to make sure his sinuses and nasal turbinates are allright. Hope this helped.

Hi, I have quit smoking already for the last 7 months, but I am still having oral secretions in the middle of sleep and when I wake up. It is like I have to deal with cold 365 days a year, as I can catch cold very easily if I have some sort of a cold drink. If I just rub my nose or touch it harder, will start with a flow of sneezes. I was told I have a deviated septum to a little degree. Is this in any way related to the cold symptoms and the oral secretions that I have on an every nightly basis?? If so, please advise me on the plan of action to curb these symptoms...

doctor1 MD

Hi,
You have explained your symptoms in detail and I think you are having Allergic rhinitis. "Rubbing the nose is followed by a series of sneezing" is typical of allergic mucosa of nose. And an allergic mucosa has a tendency to be wet and there will be cold for 365 days.
Allergy can be controlled...

ok this weird - In the past month and a half, i just cant sneeze anymore. i used to sneeze a few times a week and now i suddenly lost the ability to. i even tried making myself sneeze, like sniffing pepper (it just went down my throat instead of sneezing it out) and nothing worked (and these are things that always made me sneeze in the past). nothing even triggers me to sneeze anymore. i m really frustrated, and i dont know if its dangerous, normal or an indication for something. what could it be? is it a real problem or not?

doctor1 MD

1. Do you have any other symptoms besides your inability to sneeze such as numbness, weakness, decreased gag reflex, hiccups, altered taste, visual problems, trouble swallowing or breathing?
2. You should see a neurologist to rule out any disruption of the sneeze reflex pathway. You may require...
