My daughter ( 1 1/2 years old) has got running nose from this morning all of a sudden. There are no other signs of cold yet.

I want to nip it in the bud right away. Can any of you recommend some home remedies to stop it imemdiately so that it does not turn into a full blown cough & cold ?

hi lavanya,

u may rub some vicks on her chest and back. apply some vicks just below the front neckline of her tops so that she gets the vapors continuously.  also, u may give her steam inhalation. that should prevent the cold from getting worse, if it's not the beginning of some infection.

do not give any medication now, if the cold is not so allopathy/homeopathy/home-based medicines for every small problem will restrict her immune system from taking care of small infections on its own

Boil a little water with strands of saffron and give a couple of spons at night. Can help dry cold and keep warm. Take care.
