My child is 2 and a half years old and has mucous problem, kindly suggest some home remedy medicine?

While milk is assumed to cause more mucous, this quality can be suppressed by boiling it with ginger powder, turmeric, black peeper etc. And then instead of causing mucous, it dissolves the mucous so that body can eliminate it easily. Mix 1 cup milk, 1 cup water, add 1/2 tsp ginger powder or 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger root, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and slow boil till 1 cup remains. Let it become luke warm. Add 1 tsp clarified butter and 2 pinches sea salt and let child drink it quickly. This allows mucous to become free and expelled through mouth, nose etc. IN case you do not get clarified butter, use only sea salt.

A child stays in a very irritated and cranky mood because of the mucous blockage. Help him by these simple home remedies.

  1. Encourage your child to eliminate mucus, as suppressing it will cause blockage of mucus in the lungs.
  2. Mix ginger powder in honey and make a thick paste, give him 3- 4 times in a day.
  3. Carefully make him breathe over a container of boiling water containing vaporizer or herb like carom seeds to clear his nasal passage and separate the mucus. Keep safe distance and protect his hands and legs form getting burnt.
  4. Increase the consumption of fluids. Give him boiled water, vegetable soups, broths that will help to moisten and thin mucus and soothe his throat.
  5. Limit the consumption of dairy products as they are more mucus forming. Also make a note of other food stuff hat he is allergic to, and avoid its consumption.
  6. Avoid smoking around him as passive smoke inhalation will worsen the infection.Give medications that are prescribed by your specialist.
