    Hi,

    You are facing a very common problem among children of that age. I also had the same problem with my son and when he was about 2 years old, I took my son to a Homeo Doctor and the Doc gave him medicines to improve his immunity. Now he is alrite.. He does not get affected unless its a drastic weather change. You can try that. Homeo is a trusted form of medicine which has no side effects. All you need to do is to find a good Doctor in your area.

    Regards
    Sylvia

    HI Murugesan & kundavai,
    The recipe told by Ketal is very effective and that is turmeric pd. I also give this to my 3 yr old daughter the same. this is very good for running nose also. For cold and cough one more tested recipe is dry fry the turmeric pd, add honeyand ginger juice to it and take it. This is very very effective. You should give it a try.
    bye

    hi everyone,
    I have a home remedy which my mother swears by.
    It is to be given in winters if your child is likely to get a chill, even adults can have this.
    It is to be had at night before going to bed
    ingredients:- 4,5 badam (almond) chopped or ground
    2 spoon besan (gram flour)
    few badi elaichi dana (ground)
    method:- put 2 spoon ghee in a kadhai, add besan, after 1min add badam, then add
    elaichi, keep stirring till it becomes light brown then add 1 cup water and sugar
    (to taste).Bring it to a boil while stirring.Remove from flame and serve as hot as the child can comfortably drink.
    (use this remedy on kids two years and above)
    Hope it works for you
    love,
