Hi Deepti. Vicks helps to break down the mucous thereby making it easier to be expelled (through cough). It does help for sure especially during congestion. Hope your daughter is feeling better. Such wonderful remedies have been suggested here :)

The tips seem to be really useful. I do would like to try them as my going to be three year old son suffers from flem all the time, catches viral and falls sick. The problem aggravates when he vomits and rejects food. This is quite perpetual in Dubai ....I have heard. I am sure these tips would prove handy and useful. Thanks to all the parents.... arunima, asha, Komal, Shikha and am.

Hey Deepti, I have tried this medicine (homemade) on my kids . It is very effective. Mix one spoon of ginger juice and few drops of tulsi leaves juice with one spoon of honey and 1/4 spoon turmeric powder. Mix all well and heat for few seconds. Give this mixture one full tea spoon twice or thrice. It is very effective and cures cough within 3 to 4 days.

Hey Deepti, vicks rubbed onto the feet at night really helped with my kids. It gives some relief from the cough when they sleep. My daughter still catches a cold very easily and every time her cough lingers on. It gets easier for them as they grow too, it is up to the age of 3 years that is the most difficult. You could try the home remedies suggested by the other parents. You could also try making her inhale steam (sitting in a steamy bathroom with the hot shower running. This will open up the congestion and give her some relief. Hope she recovers soon. Take care.

yes... thts true... i was abt to write the same... but dont use much vicks... u can use vicks during the night if child coughing continuosly. I can give u one more remedy... i dont how will u take it.... a south indian lady suggested me... take 2 bettel leaves (paan ka patta) clean it and apply vicks on it... put one on the chest and another one in the back of the child for 15 mins. Bettle leaf is quite hot it helps to melt down the cough and it comes out either from mouth or stool. Trust me it really works. Do it once in a day in summers(night). can google it.

keep on giving her water... if possible glucose water.. it help s to remain energy. Give her Pediasure mix in water, it will give her energy and keep her contented. I had faced same problem last yr and my son lost 3kgs in 2 months.. and he never recovered. I mean he is gaining weight but looks very weak. Give her some different things to eat.. give her bread jam (pineapple, stawberry jam, Can buy fresh pineapple, very sweet mango... it really change tongue taste as well) afer having so many medicine child doesnt feel like eating specially normal food. Just to change taste I used to give a small peice of chocolates to my son... after a day he started eating. Rest... I believe you shud continue with the medicine.
