My 5 year old son is allergic to dust and smog. As soon as the weather became muggy, he had a fit and I started nebulization immediately. He has been on nebulization for 3 years now. But I am worried about its side effects. I request parents to please share their experience with me on nebulization.

My son is 2. 6 yrs old. He also catches cough and cold very frequently and I had to give nebulizer some times, Since last 20 days doctor has suggested us to give him septilin syrup once a day (5 ml) but till now we have not seen any difference in him. Please anyone suggest any home made therapy for cough and cold.

Hi Varsha, septilin is a syrup meant to boost immunity and you will need to give it for 2-3 months. It will not show results immediately. I try and give my children a kadha that works very well--boil a few tulsi leaves, mulethi stick, laung, and dry or grated fresh ginger in water. Boil it down till the colour turns dark brown. give a tbsp to your son, morning and night, last thing before he goes to sleep. add some honey to make it easier for him to drink.
