Hi Nisha, some of it is unavoidable but will improve as they grow.. on your part, you may boost their immunity by giving more proteins and vitamins in the diet and take adequate precaution during the change of season example correct clothing/ room temperature/avoiding known triggers.

Hi saroj, children can be quite irritable with the blocked nose/cold symptoms... also there may be headache/bodyache along with it which does not help! Keep her well hydrated, have a low threshold for giving paracetamol for aches during that time and keep her comfortable. Take care !

Hi surabhi ! for simple sore throats, warm water with honey usually works well. Throat infection may need medication, sometimes antibiotics if thought to be a bacterial infection.

hi Sudha, yes environmental influences are inevitable and we can not wrap our kids in cotton wool too.. they have to be in school, play outdoors , interact etc. But we can boost their immunity by providing a correct diet , avoiding known allergens and responding to symptoms appropriately.
