Hi all,    My son 2. 11 yrs used to get cough n cold too often n every 15 dys medicine is not gud so i started homeopathy 2 mnths bck. Before taking homeopathy he always took d paediatrition given medicine n never suffered frm breathlessness n wheezing. I understand that homeopathy treatment takes time bt nw its bin almost 2 mnths he has cold n cough n wheezing. Everyday breathlessness is taking the childhood out of him. He cnt play run sleep n even while siting he gets restless coz of tht. I cnt bear to c him in that condition. He started taking Asthalin Inhaler to control his wheezing n breathlessness. Bt tat works for a short while n then again his wheezing starts. Too much of Asthalin is giving him a headache. M a super worried parent here not understanding wether to continue wit homeo or get bck to his regular ped doc n stop d everyday use of asthalin. Pls pls help n giv me ur honest replies.

I am giving for cold and immunity, she also had frequent episodes of cold and cough and touch wood its better now with these meds. Doses are mentioned on pack. http://www.schwabeindia.com/Schwabe-India-Products/Speciality-Formulations/Kindi-Range.html Check out on this link. there are 2 pages. 0 LikeSharegaurima: Tuesday, Sep 10 Report AbuseDear Vishal... my son was also told to be on the road to asthma ... I really felt troubled... had to give him salbutamol + asthalin ... and then I decided to try other approaches and they worked wonderfully well. Besides that there are few things that may help:1) Avoid mixing sugar directly in the milk rather make sugar syrup (Chashni) and mix. Or use 'mishri', 2) aviod chips, refined flour products, packed juices and sweetened drinks,3) an effective concoction can be made by boiling tulsi leaves - 2, ginger juice - few drops and honey - 1 spn. boil these for 3 - 4 min in small quantity of water and give by mixing in the milk; 4) other additions from the kitchen that can be put in milk are green-cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, sauth(dried ginger),jai-phal (scrub it on a rough surface to get tiny amount and mix) 5) other very effective remedy is boil 1/4 teaspoon of zeera as well as ajwain in little water and give by mixing in milk 6) avoid giving cold things at least in the second half of the day, 7) Avoid rice, curd at the time of cough and cold. 8) make sure that her nose is clear at night give steam if needed and give her luke warm water to drink at night. 9) use natural products as much as possible 10) as soon as you notice some sign of sneezing or coughing you can try herbal churan like SITOPLADI or some mild anti-allergic medicine like L-montus Kid once in the evening for 2 to 3 days. last but the least be patient, stick to some approach for some time

Hi Neha, my daughter is 3. 5 and she started developing wheezing issues from 2. 5... I nebulize her.. and now she is asthmatic also. Please work on the allergens that you might think is causing the problem for him. It could be anything strong smelling (from kitchen smoke, perfumes, agarbathi, dhoop bathies), to a mould patch on the wall or house dust, pollens (high allergen time due to pollen is between 10am to 6pm)... If Asthalin does not suit him, ask the doctor to change it to Levolin (it is a better drug than Asthalin). Continue on homeopathy parallelly. Do not discontinue his Allopathy drugs till the symptoms subside. Any medicine long-term is bad, but still inhalers and nebulizers cause less harm than orally taken medicines.

Homopathy has treatment for all the deseases trust me... we completely tk homopathy medicine... no matter wht the problem is. My son eyes got swollen it was initial stage of eye flu..... my husband wanted to visit eye specialist... but i wanted to stick to homo teatment.... n believe me only with homopathy medicine he recovered in a weeks time... with NO eye drops... the mattter to search a very good doc.... it doesnt mean he shud b from 5star hospital or very well reputed... u wont belive my doc has very small clinic n very young mid 30s..... I agree with arunima... if ur son has so much problm u shud start give him alopahty for the time being.. meantime search for good homopathy doc... as soon as he recovers.... shift to homopathy... continue medicine...

2 months is enough for homopathy treatment. I think u shud ask ur homopathy doc to change the medicine or u change the doc.... before changing the doc... check review from other ppl aabt the doc. I hv also chnged 2 homopathy doc... this one is the third one whom we are consultig now. All homo docs r nt good.... they give very complicating medicines n dont listen to the patient.... now our current one is really good he gives very simple medicine n patiently listen to the patient and give a wise advise n touchwood his medicine works for my whole family. Do check the review from other patient before changing the doc.

Dear Neha. I suggest you go back to the medicine initially prescribed. Once he is better, you could start with homeopathy as preventive medication. Children upto the age of 5 normally suffer from frequent colds and it can linger on. My daughter always suffered from cough. I used to give her cough medicine only if it got very bad, otherwise let her cough it out! Try giving your son some hot soup (chicken/veg), warm honey water, warm drinking water, hot dal water etc. YOu could also have a cool mist humidifier in your son's room to keep the air moistened at night. The dry winter air could irritate your son's throat even more. I suggest you take him back to the ped and speak to him about his condition; ask his opinion and the best medication (you may mention that he loses the sensation of taste with the current medicine) to control his cough and wheezing. Once it is manageable you may switch to homeopathy. Hope this helps.
