1) Heat the powder and keep it on ur little one centr head with manageable heat it's a quick result. 2) This home remedy for treating chest congestion is very popular in India and it is very effective. To make the remedy, take mustard or coconut oil and heat it along with little synthetic camphor. When it is warm, rub it on the child's chest and back to get good relief from chest congestion.

Take 1 spoon aaliv(jawas), a pinch of ajvaine, turmeric powder approx. 1/2 spoon, a glass of water & honey for taste approx. 1/2 spoon. First mix all mixture in water except honey. Make it boil till it comes to half. Lastly add honey stain it. have this syrup around 2 -3 times a day. It should be given lukewarm only. All contents are very good for cough & cold.

Thanks.... and my advice to all parents is to minimize use of medicines for cold at least, due to dire side effects. Instead try one of these home remedies. They really work:)
