Cold & Cough Relief Expert Tips to Help Your Child

Dr. Shipra Mathur - Paediatrician


Sep 21, 2017 | 4 : 00 PM to 5 : 45 PM

Achhuuuuuuuuu! Yes, it’s that time of the year when you are likely to hear your child sneeze and it may turn into a cold, or worse – flu. Flu is actually a viral infection that resembles a regular cold, only it is more severe; it is most common during season change and usually starts with a cold or a sore throat.



What to do to bring relief to your child?



Be it cold, cough or flu – you will try anything to bring relief to your child…right? After all, it is dreadful to see your child struggle through the day and then go through sleepless nights. Now we all know the tried-and-tested traditional home remedies… ginger-honey concoction, haldi milk at bedtime and more – but the question is…… can home remedies cure the problem?



What more can you do?



Though we try every remedy that is suggested to us by friends and family, we have no insights on what really works! So now you can take a doctor’s opinion on these remedies and also find out what more can be done to ease your child’s discomfort. Besides, a doctor can throw light on other queries, such as: How long should a cough (related to season change) last? What to do for a dry cough and what to do in case of a 'wet' or chesty cough? Many times, even after the child has started feeling well, the mucus or phlegm does not cease - what to do in this case? What to do when the child begins to complain of an ear ache? So on and so forth!



An answer for every question…



REGISTER  NOW  for  a  LIVE  CHAT  with Dr  Shipra  Mathur,  well-known paediatrician, to get your answers…



What you stand to gain?



•             Doctor’s tips on how to bring relief to your child’s cold, cough and associated issues – what works best depending on your child’s age…



•             Sharing your current go-to strategies with the doctor and finding out if they are worth continuing



•             Get expert advice on preventive measures that can ward off frequent cold-flu cycles

hi, fruits are otherwise rich in vitamin c , so unless he clearly gets a bad throat after eating a sour fruit, there is no reason to avoid them. also, make sure he gets enough proteins from milk/eggs/dal etc. Take care. 2017-09-21 16:15:56

The appetite and thus the weight does get affected quite quickly in young babies. May take a week or two but will pick up then. Till then you continue to offer frequent feeds to make up and solids that he is well settled on. 2017-09-21 16:55:10

Frequent antibiotics may sometimes cause problems.. Would be useful to try and improve his immune system naturally through a better and more nutritious protein and vitamin rich diet.

Yes that's right. The knot is a lymph node which is made up of cells that increase to fight the infection and subside when that is done. It's a normal body response.. not a worry 2017-09-21 16:50:29
