how to give ajwain cabbage steam

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

Hi Akansha, here is a remeady which I use for my kid..take little gingely oil or musturd oil or coconut oil, heat it, off the stove..then add little camphor ( not too much, for 25 ml of oil, 4 small sized camphor balls would be enough) to it.Apply this to the baby's chest when it is warm.Swich off the fan when u r doing it.U can store this in a bottle n whenever u want it , u can heat (warm) n use it; Give frequent sponze baths to control fever if it is too high;

fever isnt too high, around 101, but nose is completely blocked that she found it very difficult to sleep... :(

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

Ok, put her on a pillow( raise)

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

sorry..that was by mistake

akansha grover

what was by mistake. isnt it okay to put the baby on a pillow to raise the head?

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

Put her on a pillow, use sinearest vapo capusules on pillow or the above said oil with camphor on chest and also pillow would ease the symptoms..It worked very well with my kids..but be careful with the quantity of camphor u use..it should not give very strong odor..

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

S..it is ok..I wanted add some more info ..☺

akansha grover

okay. and thank you so much
