An often seen condition that stresses out a playful child is the common cold. It is mostly followed by a cough. Due to medications, many times, the cough dries up. It is not rare that as the child sleeps, the coughing episodes increase, causing distress to the child and worry to the parents.
Spoonful of Relief
A very effective home remedy, with only two ingredients, can ease the child. Take a spoonful of honey and add a pinch or two of turmeric powder. Mix with clean finger and just let your child lick it. Since ages, Ayurveda tells the benefits of turmeric. Being a natural antiseptic, it has tremendous healing powers. Honey acts as a soother and because of its sweetness, is easily accepted, rather enjoyed, by kids.
