He has running nose when he sleeps. Sometimes too much mucus he can't breath. He is a lot fussier and red eyes..

my daughter seems to have constant flu type symptoms that just havent gone away in the past few months. I dont think its to do with allergies but it does tend to make her slightly unsettled when she wakes, the whole runny nose etc. My daughters 9 months and has had it a fair while

I agree with Katherine...and also want to suggest you take him in to see the doctor since he has mucus which can turn into an infection.

I would say no. Try a cool mist humidifier and saline drops. My girls went through the same thing at that age.
