DS's Runny Nose

Tell me how to make it go away! DS has been battling one for a week now. Ped says it's fine & nothing catchy but not sure what preschool will have to say about that.

Re: DS's Runny Nose

A few drops of salt water in the nose works really good to get it all out at once. Salt water literally eats up mucous. When my ds had a runny nose one day, we did this and he got it all out in one cough, and was all better the next day.

We also used eukalyptus oil on his shirt because it 1 drop kills germs for 1 hour, and it also clears up a stuffy nose. Bringing him to steam in the bathroom by closing the windows whenever someone showers and adding some eukalyptus oil can work wonders, too.

Good luck, mama! I hope it gets better soon!
