Toddler with Chronic Congestion

I have a 2.5 year-old toddler. From the age of around 13 months she has had a runny-nose with really bad congestion for 90% of the time. It started when she began daycare and continued for 9 months.
We then moved to India and she was better for a while and now it has started again. It could be pollution, it could be an allergy I just don't know what to do.
She has no fever and is happy enough but she always has a runny nose and has really deep flemmy coughs - especially at night.
The bit that concerns me most is due to this she suffers from ear problems alot and the doctor is now suggesting removing her adenoids which I am loathe to do.
Any ideas

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Have you considered that she may have a mild allergy problem? Please ask your pediatrician.

I have - and he says its sometimes normal for a toddler and I should consider removal of adenoids - which seems extreme to me
I asked if it could be allergies and he said unlikely because it comes and goes irrespective of where she is or what she eats !
I thought it could be dairy so cut it out and fed her soya milk - no luck
I have moved countries too so the environment is totally different - no luck

Yassy, my almost 3 yr old boy has had chronic nasal congestion since he was a newborn. It was first attributed to him being a c-section baby whereas the mucus was not squeezed out like it would have been during a vaginal delivery. Then when he was 2 the pediatrician suspected allergies to our dog perhaps. I had his blood drawn to be tested for any allergen that could be tested for with his blood. It came back a big negative. I took him to Ear Nose and Throat specialist because pediatrician recommended tonsils and adenoids out. ENT said definitely adenoids removed and tubes put into his ears because he has so much congestion behind his ears that he can't hardly hear. Which explains delayed speech. I also switched to soy milk with no luck after the adenoidectomy and ear tubes. He recovered very quickly from the 15 minute surgery and was playing later that day. The ENT told me that because he had so much excessive adenoid tissue that bacteria was being trapped and causing infections constantly with were becoming increasingly immune to antibiotic treatment. I, personally, am at a loss for what is causing his constant congestion. Good luck and if you find anything that works, please let me know!

I suggest Calcarea Iodide 6c 3 pills 3 times a day for 10 days.

You should be giving her Bacillinum 200 1 dose after a week of Cal.Iodide administration. Don't give any medicine the day you give Bac.200. Please consult after 10 days.

I recommend Bacillinum 200 One dose to begin with. Dont give any medicine on the same day.

Next day onwards Baryta Iodide 30c 3 pills three times a day.

Consult after 15 days.

My result is based on use of Select Your Remedy and dowsing

My son is 18 months old and also has chronic congestion and ear infections, and runny nose. He used to have eczema which we found out was cat allergy. He is currently on 2 allergy medications, singulair and zyrtec. It has really helped. He constantly has fluid in his ears due to congestion. Some would say he needs tubes, but I always try to figure out what it is that is causing these reactions. With your son, I definately say he is having some type of allergy. Has he had a skin test? My son also has speech delay due to the fluid in his ears. The allergist put him on allergy medication to reduce the likelyhood of him getting asthma.

I would definately put him on a good proibotic 2x daily to offset all the antibiotic use. Then I would get him skin tested to see what it is. If the skin test comes back negative you may consider food allergies such as wheat, dairy, etc. Remember soy is hard to digest. I would switch him to goat milk. You could do a food challenge to see if its that.

Good luck, I know this is hard!

Dear Yassy and others who have posted trying to resolve their toddlers' allergy problems/chronic nasal congestion. I have had the same issues with my child.

Dr Sears has a site on which he lists a VERY comprehensive (no medication) list of ways to allergy-proof one's house. It is great to finally have such a step-by-step, practical guide.

Hope this helps!

I am not able to post the URL on this site, but if you go to askdrsears then look under the common illnesses, and under A for Allergies, you will find the list.

I would like to email you but your email is not in your profile. I could have written you post! My 19 month old daughter is a mirror of your childs problems all the way from her being a c-section baby in the nicu because of the mucus to tubes (2 sets) and adenoids removal and negative allergy tests. We have gotten rid of our cat and put our daughter on a dairy, egg, soy, gluten and wheat free diet. She is also on zyrtec. NOTHING HAS WORKED! I really hope that you get this. i would like to know if you have found out anything since your last post on this forum. I refuse to accept that as my pediatrician and Ent have told me my daughter is a mucusy child. UNACCEPTABLE!

She looks going towards Asthematic.
Please give Arsenic Alb. 30 (One Pills in the morning once a day only) & wait for a week and then report.
Rajendra last decade
what does Asthematic mean? Sorry if I sound silly. I tried searching and all I get is do you mean asthmatic.

Hi! my 3+ month old son has had congestion since day one. he was a big newborn: 9 1/2 pounds & they said his congestion at birth might be due to that. any ideas why he might still be congested? i have to suction his nose out every day! he is breastfed & i need to be stricter about avoiding dairy to rule that out. we do have one cat.
thanks a ton!

I have a 15 month old son that has had chronic congestion for months now. We just found out he has allergies. He has an appt on Thursday with a allergy specialist to find out more. My little guy is constantly sick. Runny nose, congestion, fevers, you name it. He has now develped this rash on his face which I think is Ezcema. He is also in a large daycare center, I know this doesnt help. I believe we have been giving him things his little body just could not handle but we didnt know! I just want to get him better and not see him suffer. I hope to find out what I can do for him on Thursdays appt. I feel for you mommas out there in the same situation.

My son is 20 months old and has had the same problems all of your children seem to have. He has the chronic congestion,ear infection and runny nose. My son also has asthma. All the congestion leads to wheezing. His problems also started when I put him in daycare two days a week. I am also looking for some tips.
