Homeopathic Remedies for Stuffy Nose or Snuffles

Natural Remedies for Infant Stuffy Nose

Stuffy nose, often called as snuffles in children, is an obstruction in the nasal passages which arises due to swollen lining membranes and nose inflammation which causes the breathing passageway to become narrow.  This is a common symptom of the common cold, flu or chronic sinusitis.

The most common causes of stuffy nose or snuffles are due to allergies such as allergic rhinitis, a deviated nasal septum or nasal polyps.  Baby snuffles are not really harmful but may cause breathing difficulty during feeding and since most conventional medications are not suitable for babies, the ideal alternative is homeopathy which is safe for everybody including babies.
