In foreign countries, they use a machine called humidifier to treat colds in children. It is supposed to help the child to breathe better and cure the cold faster. I don' t know if this machine is available in India. Such machines should be made available in India if it is not available. It is very beneficial for children. Such new technologies will surely help to fight small diseases like cold very easily. It is very necessary to get acquainted with such amazing machineries and enjoy their benefits.

One thing that you must remember is that colds decrease with age. As children, we catch colds throughout the year. Then, as we become older the frequency of colds decreases. Old people almost never get colds. And even if old people get cold they can treat it using home remedies. Old people always prefer home and natural remedies to treat the disorders like cold. It is not necessary for old people to visit doctor every time but it is essential to take a child to the doctor before the cold gets converted in to fever or some other disease.

Very nice article. There are many things we do not know properly and we rely on others to help us but sometimes they are not correct. Instead we should find out proper scientific reasons for what we do. Or we can also directly visit our doctor to find proper solution the problem rather than wasting time on other stuff. It is always necessary to keep some medicine at home prescribed by the doctor during the times of emergencies. It is very essential to keep a cold and cough syrup at home always and it helps. It is better to listen to the doctor than listing to others opinions.

RE:Thumb sucking
Hi there please do not think so much and just visit a chemist and ask for a liquid solution as there is a solution which needs to be applied on the kids thumb so as he tries to suck it there would be bitter taste and by this he will not suck it again.... - Anushree [View Message]
