Increase breastfeeding ,feed solids with plenty of water, fruit juices to keep the baby hydrated Keep sick children away from the affected one and let them get plenty of rest Wash your hands thoroughly frequently before handling the baby and his things Quit smoking and avoid taking him to such placesKeep his nose clean and wipe it gently frequently with a clean cloth Avoid using a mosquito repellants and deos when the child is affected as these can cause allergy Apply saline drops(as recommended by the pediatric) in each nostril whenever there are signs of irritation and difficulty in breathing(My grab : Nasoclear) Keep their pillows elevated slightly to help them breathe easily during nasal congestionParacetamol tablets under doctor’s supervision if the fever goes high (>=100o) Boil Ajwain seeds and honey/tulsi leaves in drinking water and feed at regular intervalsMassage with mustard oil (around 5-10 tsp. ) heated with crushed garlic and ajwain seeds on the child’s chest,neck,throat,forehead and head. You can store this mixture (cooled and strained) in an airtight bottle for later use. Apply Steam .You can do this by turning on hot water in the bathroom and let the door remain closed for the steam to flow. Sit in the room with the child for about 20 minutes.
