yes this seems  allergic condition ... as it is improved by montelukast ..I advise to continue for one month more .. then stop .. it is usually seasonal ... so at this time nd near march April u may need to repeat course again .. and provide baby dust free environment. don't give soft toys to baby as it contains dust nd furr particles .. limit his outings in open air
