It is not unusual in winter months to have long standing cough even after the infection, mostly viral has gone away. However to be on the safer side I would suggest a blood test including cbc and esr, sputum test microscopy and zn stain if you are bringing up phlegm and a chest xray. If these are normal, only symptomatic treatment with a cough syrup will suffice. If tests are abnormal then appropriate treatment has to be given.

Cold and Cough in Children - Precautions that Parents Must Take

Cold and Cough in Children - Precautions that Parents Must Take

Cold and cough is caused by a viral infection, which can last for about two to four weeks. The symptoms include stuffy or a runny nose, coughing and sore throat. Many times, the infection may raise body temperature and the child may suffer from fever. Our body’s immune system naturally fights with such infections. Depending on the type of cough and the symptoms, the virus can stay active in the body for about 4 to 6 weeks. It is quite painful to see the child suffering from cold and cough. The symptoms of this infection are worse during the first two days.

The child will experience pain and irritation in the throat with difficulty in swallowing, frequent coughing with mucous, breathing difficulty and high fever. Most parents rush to over the counter drugs for cold and cough to ease of their child’s agony. However, most drugs/ cough syrups available over the counter only provide temporary relief. Medical evidence suggests that antibiotics do not kill viruses, thus, it is not advisable to treat cold and cough with antibiotics unless accompanied by another infection. So, what do parents do? Well, there is a lot that can be done.

Let’s first understand the type of a cough your child might be suffering from:

  1. Dry cough: Generally occurs due to infection in upper respiratory tract, cold or influenza. Children with asthma and allergies are also prone to this type of cough as dry cough is triggered by smoke or dust.
  2. Croup Cough: A harsh barking and dry cough with swelling beneath vocal cords.
  3. Wet Cough: Most commonly caused by cold. This is an infection of the lower respiratory tract characterised by mucous secretions.
  4. Whooping cough: Characterised by fast coughing, breathing difficulties and a whooping sound while breathing.

Apart from this, If coughing starts suddenly along with choking, the child may have inhaled a foreign body. Immediate help may be required. For babies less than 12 months of age, cold cough followed by breathing difficulties may indicate bronchiolitis and require a paediatric attention. A normal cold and cough generally subside with two to four weeks. However, it is important to understand when to consult a doctor.

  • Chest pain or breathing problems
  • Cough lasting for more than 6 weeks.
  • A yellow, green or brown mucous indicating another infection.
  • Swollen glands, persistent high fever, rashes.
  • Body getting pale and symptoms getting worse.
  • Temperature higher than 38 degrees in the case of infants.

Precautions and diet that should be taken care of

  • Increase Intake of fluids especially hot liquids
  • Never stop breastfeeding the baby
  • Vapour rub applied on chest and back is an effective remedy
  • Inhaling steam provides relief to a sore throat and nose
  • Intake of crushed tulsi leaves with honey or hot turmeric milk is soothing and very helpful

There is little we can do to prevent viral infections. However, proper care and caution can ensure a smooth recovery. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

Hello, homoeopathic remedies for asthma are very effective and can cure asthma permanently.

Sinusitis - Ayurvedic Remedies For It!

Sinusitis refers to an extremely painful condition caused due to the inflammation and swelling of sinuses. A host of causes contribute to sinusitis, chief among them being allergies, air pollution or sometimes infection. It causes extreme discomfort, throbbing headache, sore throat and a blocked nose. Though different branches of medicines have tried in their own ways of dealing with this problem, ayurveda with its reliance on natural products as remedial measures have emerged as a clear favorite.

Some of the ayurvedic remedies for sinusitis are:

  1. Inhalation of steam with tulsi: The benefits of tulsi are widespread and need little introduction. The ambit of its advantages is expansive, making its presence felt even in treating sinusitis. In case of severe bouts of sinusitis, it is highly recommended that you inhale steam with tulsi almost every day in the week.
  2. Have ginger along with honey: Another way of treating acute pangs of sinusitis is by making a paste of ginger and honey. Make small tablets of this mixture and for most effective results it is advisable that you have it every day.
  3. Avoid certain food: Just how incorporating certain food in the diet help in reducing the pain of sinusitis, eliminating few, often times help you to achieve the same purpose. When you suffer from sinusitis, it is only advisable that you diligently avoid dairy products like milk, yoghurt as well as intoxicants like cigarettes and alcohol.
  4. Lemon juice and water: In the initial stages of sinusitis, having a daily concoction of lemon juice and water is considered very beneficial. During this phase maintaining a light diet is advisable.
  5. Practice pranayama: The gamut of ayurvedic remedies includes not only the prescription of what to eat and what to avoid but also several exercises that help in expediting the process of recovery. Among them, pranayama with its focus on control and regulation of breath is particularly beneficial in curing sinusitis.

Kindly take any ayurvedic medicine under supervision of an experienced ayurvedic doctor.

Anatomical structures are more diverse in the mouth than in any other region. The human face begins to form during the 4th week of embryonic development. By the 6th week the external face is completed.  Between the 6th and 8th weeks the development of the palate subdivides nasal and oral cavities.  This development continues into the 12th week with completion of the soft palate. 3. DEVELOPMENT OF FACE • Face develops from 3 prominences that surround the stomatodeum 1. One frontonasal process 2. Right and Left maxillary processes (from first pharyngeal arch) • 3- Right& left Mandibular processes (from the first pharyngeal arch). •N. B. Stomodeum is a depression bounded cranially by a bulging produced by the brain and caudally by a bulging produced by the pericardial cavity. * From each side of lower part of frontonasal process two mesodermal processes appear called medial& lateral nasal processes (they will give the nasal cavities in the future. 4.

Dear Lybrate user Our body gets addicted to smoking or any addiction. And a sudden withdrawal of it is not acceptable to the body and the mind and it resists. As addiction gives immediate happiness gratification. Different people get different withdrawal symptoms. If you again start smoking you will see that these problem are gone (slowly). Getting rid of any addiction is not easy as you body is craving for it. If you are not able to do it properly the you should seek some psychological help. By psychotherapy and clinical hypnotherapy it becomes easy to get rid of any addiction. You can contact me for more information if you want.

You are suffering with respiratory allergy so your symptoms get increased with exposure to dust. You should avoid these trigger factors such as dust, smoke, fumes, pungent smells. There are good medicines available to manage respiratory allergies, but only if they are taken in guidance of a allergy and respiratory specialist advice.
