home remedies to clear mucus from toddler...health Corner
It is natural for children to catch seasonal coughs and cold. Massage your child's chest and back with warm mustard oil infused with garlic pods and aijwain. Also, you may give him/her ginger and honey mix! This is another effective remedy that works wonders. Grate some ginger and squeeze its juice. Mix it with honey. Give this to your child thrice a day and you will see the difference. Avoid using antibiotics as much as possible. As antibiotics curb the cold and cough symptoms. Avoid giving fruits in evening. For a cough and cold, you can give your daughter plenty of warm fluids. You may give her bone broth (if you are a non-vegetarian). For vegetarians, clear vegetable soups will do the trick. Also, hot rasam (a South Indian dish of watery consistency taken with rice) made with garlic, jeera and turmeric will work wonders for a cold. However, if cough & cold still persists do consult your local doctor.
