Sorry to hear about your son’s struggles. It sounds like you’re doing all the right things. For kids with chronic rhinitis and chronic cough, I am suspicious of reflux (GER/GERD) as a contributing factor. Take a look at the articles on this site for that topic. Regarding the precise amount of Manuka honey to use, it ends up being about a tablespoon for an 8-oz bottle of saline. Manuka honey may help reduce inflammation, studies have found that Manuka contains both a strong anti-microbial, and strong anti-inflammatory agents … worth a try.
Please let us know how it goes, and thanks for visiting.
I enjoyed your article, it was very informative. I had two hearing tests, a week apart. In the first one, I tested moderate hearing loss in both ears, a week later, I tested at a different facility, severe hearing loss in the left ear, moderate in the right, with the “ski slope.” The doctor noted noise induced hearing loss. Is it declining that fast or are there descrpincies in the tests on a daily bases. My hearing has gotten significantly worse in the last ten years. I hope I can stay where I am and not experience profound hearing loss in the next decade. I’m 47 years young. Thanks- worried.
