Dr. Mathur, this is truly a blessing in disguise. my girl suffers from frequent episodes of cold and goes through more or less the same stages that u have discussed. I am sure these tips would come in handy for me to manage symptoms and deal with cold effectively. thanks for sharing !

Hi Paramjeet, about your son- the congestion is most likely allergic ..therefore persisiting for so long. He would need a slightly longer course of anti allergic treatment- either as a medicine or as part of the homeopathic treatment that he is on now. Since you have just started it, give it a bit of time before we review again to see its effects and what else may be needed. Take care,
