How to cure your baby’s runny nose?

Runny nose (rhinitis) is a condition well-known to all parents. Troubled nasal breathing, fluid or mucous discharge from the nose, irritability, loss of appetite and frequently waking up at night are considered to be the most common manifestations of rhinitis. However, the symptoms are not the main risk. The baby’s immature immune system and peculiarities of nasalpharynx structure facilitate penetration microorganisms from the nasal cavity into the middle ear or paranasal sinuses. That is why when treating a runny nose in babies the main attention should be paid to preventing sinusitis and otitis, i.e. complications of a runny nose.

What can cause a rhinitis in babies?

Strong rhinitis in babies is usually a result of mucosa inflammation. The immune system perceives the substances released by pathogens coming into contact with the mucosa as hostile. As a result, an oedema is formed, the release of mucous is increased and the protective mechanism is triggered to get rid of inflammation cause. As the disease evolves, mucosa becomes more viscous and dense, thus losing its protective features.

The second most common reason of a rhinitis in babies is an allergic reaction to an irritant (pollen or spores of plants, dust mites or micromold, animal dander, etc.). This can be accompanied by a dry runny nose, when nasal breathing is affected as a result of the mucosa oedema without discharge from the nose.
