This is a very common affection among infants. The nose becomes obstructed, so as to render it necessary for them to breathe in a measure through the mouth, hence they are obliged, when nursing, to relinquish the nipple frequently, in order to get breath.
Nux-v. will frequently be all that is required, especially where there is obstruction of the nose with dryness.
Three globules, or a powder may be placed on the tongue, morning, noon and night.
Three globules, or one drop in a glass of water, ateaspoon-ful at a dose may be taken once in four or six hours, until better, unless one of the followiug remedies is indicated.
Same as Sambucus.
A little tallow applied with the finger to the bridge of the nose will often produce relief.
