My son 2. 7 yrs old falls sick wit cold n cough every season change. Mostly in rains n winters. He goes to a nursery school so if any kids r slightly unwell, they too pass on d infection.  Paediatrition given medicine works but again few dys later he starts wit cold n cough. Bascically his cold n cough keeps comming again n antibiotics cant be given every nw n then. Should i switch to homeopathy. But lot of people say homeopathy takes a longer time to cure. Pls advice.

hi all... wht i think n observed is tht the main cause of cough n cold is less immunity..... enhance ur child immunity by giving veggies, curd etc... and tk its medicine as well.

also, I have read that Tulsi plant is a good remedy for the same, if one has Tulsi plant inside the house, the aroma of the same will prevent cold n cough. I hope this will help you.

Hi Neha, I can understand your concern, as my daughter is 3 1/2 years old, n use to have the same problem. I agree that Honey , ginger & Tulsi leaves are good remedy for common cold. But the same is best in winter, I would suggest if you can arrange for a steamer ( the electric one) they are easily available, u can put it on thrice a day, with only water & anywhere slightly away from the child, the throat & nose of the child will start clearing, also there is Olesan ( Eucalyptus oil) n capsules available in the medical stores, u can put few drops on the pillow, the child will inhale the same.

You can use nasal drop like nasocare and also nothing works as good as giving warm water to ur child... honey given in small quantities isnt harmful. Give honey to the child just before he sleeps so it remains in the throat.

There is a homeopathic medicine by Schwabe called Rinikind- for cold and Tussikind for cough. These medicines are very effective and without any side effects. These are also available online on Schwabe website. My daughter had this problem too. Now it has become less frequent. I have been giving it since October.

Hi Neha, My daughetr is 2 yrs old and i am also facing the same thing. every 15 days i am at clinic for cough n cold. i have read these are allergies as season change and after 3 yrs of age they start subsiding. so now i have planned to go for home medicines as honey, ginger, etc for prevention and also while cold n cough i will do symptomatic treatment. there is Organic brand which offers tulsi and ginger tea, Its only tulsi and ginger. I Try that she have half cup in evening every day with honey. Try that coz anyways cold will be better only in 3 to 5 days wether you give medicines or not. I have been advised by fellow mothers on parentune that if you apply vicks on soul of feet and cover with socks while baby is sleeping. it helps. and it does help i tried. it was on internet also.
