@Jatin shah:i completely disagree with ur point. i am a doctor myself and have seen homeopathy curing at a faster speed than antibiotics. it is jus that people dont know its efficacy.

Good Article. But need to note,homeopathy may be preferred in certain disease only. As its wellknown that homeopathy takes too long time to cure,so we cant put child to suffer this long process. There are disease where one has to go for antibiotic only. So to conclude one. can reduce antibiotic use. but. cant stop it fully.

Homeopathy is best for kids for regular illnesses such as cough n cold.. I have been using it for my son since when he was 3. It doesn't have any side effects and is completely safe and also help improve the immune system.

i think most of the parents are not aware about the homeopathic medecines which work wonderfully in children n adults n especially in those cases where modern medicine has its limitations

I completely agree with the article. I am facing the same problem with my 7 years old child who fell ill 4-5 times during the last year and was put on antibiotics every time. Now she is passing RBCs(3-5) on and off and has undergone many tests (USG,KFT and 24 hrs calcium creatinine test). She has no symptoms just saw RBC in routine test. Important thing is most of the time she got RBC was when she was under some treatment for some infection (stomach, throat) and was on antibiotic. My homoeopath says antibiotics are causing ideopathic hematuria (blood in urine). I have vowed not to give her antibiotic for virus infections, as rightly put in the blog. but let me tell you doctors are also to blame as they have to promote medicines of giant pharma companies. In my case they are scaring me with some disease of kidny (although kft etc are normal). I dont know how can you know if your child is passing RBCs(mocroscopic) unless there are some symptoms and what people of earlier times do ??????

@Ritu Drolia: Bangalore weather is not very congenial for cold and cough. I faced issues with my son as well. You can avoid giving massage to your daughter in cold weather as this cools the body and it takes more water to remove oil from baby's body. During cold weather you can choose olive oil (Himalaya baby massage oil is good) and hot weather chose coconut oil. I know it is very stressful for parents to see child suffering but you must have some patience. You should see doctor if you are feeling your baby is not eating enough, feeling anxiety and not active. For cold and congestion try to give steam with steaming capsule in it. Put a little vicks on chest and back. In home remedy honey works well if baby is older than one year. Give lukewarm water and cover her properly. Rule out with doctor if child is asthma prone. I can give you contact for child’s pediatrician in Bangalore. She is very good.

I had recently attended one medico conference in our office. In that one experienced pulmonologist told us that for the next 10 years there's no new antibiotics available in our medical science. So we have to manage with limited antibiotics. he adviced us as far as possible don't use them

Request u to plz clear all my doubts. Once my daughter had bad cold n cough. She left eating everything. She had to take medicines for 2. 5 months but still her cold was not better. I stopped giving her medicines as they weren't helping n she vomited out medicines immediately. A noise came every time from her nose n chest but doctor said nothing to worry. I was so worried as it was a very long time now. Then i started adding garlic pepper n ginger in everything for her. I give her bath in 3 or 4 days every time. She was just 9 months at that time. Doctor said cough will go in 3 or 4 months. It will take time. I was totally in depression. I never gave her massage also at that time. I gave her so many home remedies that now she has lot lot lot of heat in her body. Now i am afraid to give any home remedies or even medicines in cold as it creates heat. Now she’s 20 months old. I give her bath daily but after that her nose starts running for 4…5 hrs. Is it any allergy or Bangalore weather problem. plz tell me this ma’am. Also throw some light on massage in cold And wd what type of oil and at what time of day???is adding camphor safe in coconut oil for sensitive skin baby. She had a reaction at 2 months with Johnson powder. So am asking this. Plz reply for my each single question. m sorry for long post but i am stressed wd all ds…y it happened for 3... 4 months n all…. she had deficiencies of vitamin d…iron n calcium due to not eating anything in dat cold. She didn’t even took vitamin syrups also. What should i do in such a case when nothing is helping n for how many days i should wait to goto doctor???

Great article Dipti. Antibiotics are prescribed without any real need these days in India. We live outside India and usually have to let our children get well on their own without any medication. The doctor will not prescribe a single medicine unless there is a need to. This helps to develop the immunity as well. Your blog is very useful. Thanks!

Plenty fluids, rest and hot & warm home made food can cure lot is illnesses. Dependency on medicines should be reduced. I also try home made kadha of tulsi, ginger and lemon.

Really nice blog stating the ill-effects of antibiotic abuse. I am filled with aghast that why in India do doctors prescribe antibiotics so easily whereas in other countries there is a really stringent approach towards it. Taking oral medicines not only decreases the immunity levels in a child but can also harm the child's body. In the long run if we start giving oral medicines to our children they could develop resistance to the antibiotic too. I wonder why in today's generation people also rely upon self prescription rather than going to a doctor and prefer medicines over natural remedies.
