Q:

hi all, my two months old baby has cough. had been to the pediatrician, he says there is no chest congestion. baby is on the prescribed meds. is there any safe home remedies that I can do to help him.

Here are few remedies

Keep the boiling water in a vessel on the floor near the bed. And keep the baby on lap on the bed corner... It helps a lot.

Neha Agarwal

Intake of medicine not so good so a local application is better. Breast milk with haldi(edible haldi, best open new packet). Make it a paste and apply on chest of the baby.

Neha Agarwal

Apply garlic infused coconut oil on chest,feet

Sonali Shivlani

All external applications are fine. However do not give anything orally to the baby without the doctor's prescription.
