Hi Anu
I was also facing the same problem. You cannot do much about it as kids play with other kids and climatic changes, this is bound to happen as they are exposed to whole lot of things. Homeopathy is the best option. Continue with it. It takes some time but results are very good. Have patience. U can include Mosambi juice, orange or lemon juice in her diet but be sure u add warm water. If u want to follow ayurvedic then u can give her Septilin syrup 2.5ml 2 times aday for 3 months with Suckcee (vit C tabs) 1/2 tab a day for 3 months. This was suggested by my Doc. I would suggest U should not try too many things at the same time. If u are taking homeopathy, continue the treatment.

give mosambi/orange juice everyday unless its a very cold climate or the child has cold/cough. If its cold outside, give small banana (not the regular size one) one or two per day. you can even sprinkle some lemon juice over dal/curry during lunch.Regularly include onions in the diet. raisins , garlic,black pepper,turmeric all are good for cough/cold.
Also, try giving bath twice a day since she is going to pre-school. Wash her hands regularly. if she has cold, give steam at home instead of nebulising her. you get very good vaporisers in medical shops for nominal prices.

Kids Health
It is usual among the school going kids to get affected by fever or any bacterial infections. Take precautions before sending him to school like wearing sweater in winter and rainy season. Instruct him to wash hands before and after eating as it will prevent harmful bacteria to go inside. Also, showering twice a day will be effective.

I have faced a similar problem with my kid and his teacher helped a lot by making my kid away from chalk dust and other things during playing hours. You can also inform about your child to his teacher at school to get their help.

Its Natural
Don' t worry!!! The skin of the baby undergoes changes many times in the life time, specially in the period on which she is. She was fairer at the time of birth but now she is not and her colour will again improve after some years. So there is nothing to be worried about.

Hi Karuna! Don’t worry about your kid’s health. Try changing the medication with any other pediatricians. Make sure that your child is not exposed to any other allergies in home or school.
