My 1 year old is constantly congested since born. He snores

My 1 year old is constantly congested since born. He snores while sleeping and snorts while eating. He does not have a runny nose and when I try to suction his nose nothing comes out. He is still on formula (starting to ween him) but has no other symptoms. No cough or problems with his lungs. Overall he is healthy he was at the doctor a couple of weeks ago and lungs were good and tonsils were properly sized. Is this something that could be an allergy?

Can my family doctor prescribe an ep-pe pen for my child

Hi, can my family doctor prescribe an ep-pe pen for my child whom s/he has not seen but would hear about an allergic reaction that the child had, and thus I could have a safe-guard in place if something to that extreme happened to my child (being very difficult to breathe) ever happened again?

Our 12-year old appears to have an allergy to goat cheese.

Our 12-year old appears to have an allergy to goat cheese. He ate goat cheese pizza and immediately thereafter had a difficult time breathing. Can we just keep an Epi pen available if/when this happened again? Are there any potential negative aspects to this approach? We have not yet seen an allergist nor an immunologist. Thanks.

My daughter has 4 blood tests since August and they are

My daughter has 4 blood tests since August and they are getting more curious and concerning. We are waiting for the specialist at a hospital to review however, would 1 nucleated blood cell cause concern in a 20 month old? That is what propted further tests that have indicated high bone turnover- extremely low vitamin D and alkline phosphatase increasing by 1,000 each month for the last 4. It's over 5,400 now. Should I be banging down their door looking for answers? The pediatrician seemed very concerned but the hospital/endo specialist has been "reviewing" her file for 10 days. Any advise is much appreciated.
