Allergies in a 4 year old
by: Grandma

Hello Naveen,

It sure sounds like allergies your little 4 year old is dealing with. It could be food allergies or it could be something like a cleaning solution. Whatever it is, it's causing irritation and his body's natural immune system is trying to get rid of it by sneezing.

Since we're dealing with a 4 year old I'd suggest you try giving nose drops made from warm water and sea salt. You'd only need to make an ounce of luke warm water and just a pinch of sea salt. Put a few drops in each nostril a couple of times a day when he's having the sneezing spells. You might want to keep putting a few drops a day at first even when he isn't sneezing. Once you get the drops in his nose try to get him to blow his nose throughout the day.

If he was older I'd suggest a neti-pot but he's much too young to use one of those.

Thank you for trusting in Grandma's Wisdom,

Grandma
