Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

This is almost always caused by an upper respiratory tract viral complex.

The infections are usually self-limiting

But in the interim you can do this:

Place Joy in bathroom and put shower on hot

Repeat two to three times per day.

You can buy L-Lysine from human nutrition store and give 250 mg twice daily with food.

And you can get some neo-synephrine and put one drop in alternating nostrils every 12 hours

You do NOT need antibiotics now

Make sense?

Update me tomorrow same time.

Paul
