hi gauri for congestion pls steam. since she is 5 yrs old u can use a vapocap - simply apply the drops on her tee/top collar so she can breathe easy. i hv been using vicks since my daughter was 3 - chest, back and feet soles. pls give her lots of warm fluids like honey water, soups. if u eat chicken, fresh homemade chicken soup works wonders. i wud give medicine only whn it was 99 below the armpit. not before that. ur dr can advise u crocin based on weight for fever and at what temp. Sheeba Vijesh Rakhi Puri hv wonder remedies. hope ur little one feels better.

gauri looks like your child may probably come up with fever. please check every 4 hours. also, make sure you do n ot keep the child in very hot environment.

hi gauri, my paed. strictly advises no meds. until temperature is 100 and above... up till that, wipe baby's body with warm water, and check for temperature again after sometime... for congestion use ajwain ki potli, made with ajwain and crushed garlic cloves. you can also give her ajwain boiled water and ginger-honey-pepper mixture(this should be licked and savoured and slowly swallowed, its tasty too) ☺

my pediatric also said till 99 it's normal for babies....the weather is hot probably that's why you felt fever Gauri Nirvani.... thanks for the tag asha chaudhry
