My dd is the same, do youthinkit could be hayfever?
Have you tried carvol?

yes thought it might be hayfever alright, tried karvol and its still lngering on the bed, but dd had a headcold thing that lasted 48hrs and he got it too but its lasting longer

My dd always seems to have a cold, i dont think theres much more you can do, calpol helps a bit (might help him sleep) or piriton might help if its hayfeever (dont know what age you can give it from).Hve you tried vics vapour rub for babbies, i always find that helps?
Hope he feels better soon.

hermykne, i always find saline nasal drops followed by a quick suck with the nasal aspirator v. helpful. you can get both OTC in the pharmacy
