ExpertDr. Pandurang sawantPaediatrician
A. Mostly  cough cold episodes are viral in origin.  They may subside by 3 -9 days No need of any medication if mild.  If cough and cold then need steam inhalation, nasal decongestant drops (nasivion baby nasal drops 1drop in each nostril 3-4 times a day for 3 days). And cough syrp or drops as per babys Cough condition  (wet or dry). Keep ur baby well hydrated in cough cold  episodes Proper hand washing, keeping away ur baby from other infected persons, exclusive breast feeding ur baby till 6months of the age, will help for fast recovery.   If decreased urine output, refusal to feed, decreased activity, breathing difficulty Then need to consult  with nearest pediatrician once.

A. You can try giving steam to your baby. In case of small baby give indirect steam. Sit in a closed bathroom with the hot shower on. This way the passages will be clear and the baby won't get any discomfort. Dry roast ajwain and let it cool down in room temperature. and once it cools down, keep it near your baby by making a potli. Heat mustard oil with few garlic cloves and rub it on the chest, back and soles .This may help .
