My daughter 2 yr 8 month old. She has been having nasal congestion for last one month. During sleep at night she feel trouble in breathing once she starts taking breath with mouth. Met doctor twice, said theres no cough in chest; etc. Taking only Deriphylline, 3 times regularly for last 15 days, On doctors prescription. Another doctor says it is due to worm and prescribed syp for worms, this medication is not started yet. Please Advise with all possible detail.

Doctor's Response (Posted on : 27 Jan 2008 )


Your child is having allergic rhinitis. There are several causes for this - one of them being worm infection in the stomach. You should ask your doctor if it could be allergy to a specific substance - then she will need anti-allergic medicines rather than just Deriphyllin.
