Q. hi friends, my daughter suffering from fever and cold ..for the first time fever she got it ..it's around 101.4 c. any home remedies please.do suggest me . thank u in advance

Dr Disha PatelAyurvedic Physician55 mins ago
A. Hello..common colds are usually caused by a virus. And when it is viral, it heals on its own without any medication. I would rather stick to the good ol' home remedies like steaming, applying and massaging heaterd mustard oil to your baby's chest and back, increased breastfeeding, plenty of rest/sleep, and my favourite buddy - nasal saline drops and nasal suction bulb. Give Sinarest syrup 3.5 ml thrice a day. If fever idms high grade than do tepid sponging using tap or room temperature water.

Q. my is 4th month old baby. I am getting cold. can I breast feed my baby ?

Dr Disha PatelAyurvedic Physician54 mins ago
A. During any “ordinary” illness such as a cold, sore throat, flu, wirms infestation, fever, mastitis, etc. you should continue to breastfeed. breastfeeding should continue without interruption as there is no risk to the baby. If you need to take antibiotics or other medicine, just check with your doctor first. it’s still important to make sure you wash your hands often, avoid coughing or sneezing near your baby
