Now I know why Joaquin’s colds haven’t cleared up after 2 weeks. The pediatrician confirmed that it is allergic rhinitis. Once I got home, I immediately had the curtains washed and the sheets changed. I also had to order an air sterilizer that should kill all the bacteria and allergens in the room (if that is even possible, living in Manila). With my fingers crossed, I do hope that these steps will help Joaquin.
