Home remedy on How to get rid of a stuffed nose(she seems to have phlegm) for a 2 year old)

Cold treatment

There are several cold and cough treatments easily available in the home. Grapes clear up the lungs very quickly, acting as an expectorant. If your child likes them, it is good to eat them, or else, you can give the child a cup of grape juice thrice a day. Mix of onion juice and some honey will also clear up the lungs. Onion juice is also highly effective in loosening and getting rid of phlegm from the system. Hot milk with half a teaspoon of turmeric powder given at bedtime will help cure the cold and will also help loosen phlegm. This should be given at bedtime. If she does not like the taste, adding a teaspoon of honey should help matters along.

Herbal tea with crushed holy basil added to it is an excellent remedy for cold. You can also prepare herbal tea with cloves and peppercorns added to it and give it to the child hot, one teaspoon at a time. You can also add honey to soothe the taste. Sucking on a piece of ginger will help loosen phlegm, but this may be challenging for a child to do.

Try to get the child to inhale the vapors of eucalyptus leaves or Vicks Vaporub.
