Sinus issues in infantGreetings! I've used the online software here quite a bit, but have never posted to the forum before. I'm grateful for this community!
I have a 6 month old, and she has had sinus issues almost from birth. As some background, she was allergic to wool and it took me almost 6 weeks to figure this out. In that time, she was repeatedly exposed to wool and had repeated sinus congestion.
Since she was 4 months old, she has had a cold/infection almost continuously. I have a 5 year old son, and he is hardly ever ill. I am quite alarmed at how much she has been ill. Her symptoms are mostly upper respiratory, but she has had a croup-like cough each time she has been ill. Her symptoms at this stage are clear, thin mucus, dry and bark-like cough.
We use homeopathy (self-diagnose, mostly), and I am mostly interested in finding out if it is possible to diagnose her sinus issues. I feel her sinuses are developmentally weak, and am quite alarmed.
I should also mention that I have found out via our breastfeeding relationship, she is highly sensitive (if not allergic) to dairy and wheat.
Thanking you for any suggestions, or information on places to look.
We do have a homeopath who lives here locally, and I am sure that she could help us. It's a financial commitment I am willing to make, it will just need to be in a month or so...

Hopefully, the attached analysis would serve the purpose, btw according to GV Kali-i is the remedy.
I was trying to attach image, however, it didn't work. So please ignore this post.

Also, is there a user-friendly book that is good for family use? I do not know all of my children's symptoms, and hesitate at times to try and diagnose.

It is a chesty, almost croup-like cough. She rarely coughs except for when she lies down. It seems to be a lot of expectoration, she swallows the mucus that comes up.
There is yellow discharge from her eyes. Sinuses are still mostly clear, but seem to be shifting to yellow today. Her skin is a bit dry.
Her coughing is worse between the hours of 12 and 3 am.
She is coughing now during naptime, and it is almost incessant.
