hi S Mehta , Try to avoid exposure to dust if it acts like a allergic trigger to the symptoms . You may do dusting when child is off to school or play or may use a vacuums cleaner instead. Air purifier can help reduce indoor pollutants but dusting should be avoided in the presence of child if that is a trigger. 2017-12-27 15:25:35

hi Shreya , Avoid exposure to dust , keep minimal linen in rooms like reduce pillows , carpets rugs etc . Do regular change of curtains and other linen . Use vaccine cleaner to clear the dust instead to dusting . May use a air purifies if these measure are not adequate. Prevent exposure to allergens is the best way out. 2017-12-27 15:33:04

hi Nikki , for the good of all , crackers are already banned and there is significant reduction in use of crackers however since it cannot be stopped , the air pollution rises during the Diwali season hence using a mask and being indoor may help. Also may keep your room air clean .In my opinion can use a room air purifier as it has no harm. 2017-12-27 15:49:03

Since all members are catching cough one after the other it could be viral . Those who is suffering must wear a mask and other may also wear to prevent cross infection . Hand washing before meals . Avoid close proximity with the carrier and lastly rest and see your doctor for medications if needed 2017-12-28 14:21:01
