I would appreciate a phone call thanks
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 15 days ago.

Respected customer, thanks a lot for your input, and thanks again for visiting justanswer.com! A great place where you can find guidance and/or solution from real experts. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Even I would get tense in this situation because I am also a parent. Actually, I would prefer to call it allergy rather than cold. Allergies are common at this age and I would suggest that you should request the doctor to give betamethasone drops, 1 drop daily for 1 month and she is going to be alright. Generally, we recommend it after 1 year but I have used it for 7 months and have never seen any issue. Lastly, I would like to share a home remedy. Take 250 ml of honey, and add one tablespoon each of ginger extract, and black pepper. Make a solution and give half a teaspoon twice daily. It might take 7 days or more but will help him. The same remedy helped my son at this age. I reassure you in the same way as I would have assured some of my family members that there is nothing serious behind this so please don't stress yourself.

This is my initial answer so feel free to ask more as nothing is more important for me than your health and satisfaction.

About two weeks after she was born I noticed she was stuffy but there was no running snot just always congested. Every doctor visit I have been told that it would go away on its own and perhaps those symptoms exist because she's a winter baby
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Wouldnt the ginger and black pepper be too harsh for her at 7 months?
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 15 days ago.

They are all-natural so they are not going to be harsh.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Ok thanks much
I appreciate your input and recommendations
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
The mixture I would give it on its own or mix it with her formula?
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 15 days ago.

No just give it separately. 

You are most welcome. Is there anything else that you want to ask?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Is it worth doing a food intolerance test? I was wondering if perhaps it might be an intolerance to cow's milk
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 15 days ago.

There is no need for that.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Ok thanks much
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Much appreciated
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I will try the remedies
