Thanks quizzme and claire
Melrosum is a syrup of thyme extract, amazingly efficient and very gentle to the body. Manuka Honey, UMF 10+ or 15+ is also a fabulous natural remedy
sprinkle the olbas oil on her pillow so she will inhale it through the night. I am a big fan of Olbas oil it really helps when my little boy has a conjested chest. can't beat a big spoon of honey too.hope she feels better soon.
thanks lovelies, lots of ideas here. I got her some prospan and will try a couple of your remedies. I also have olbas oil so will use that on her tonight
half teaspoon honey & pinch turmeric powder, mix well & give it to your dd before going to bed. It really works for kids & adults too.
I too avoid cough syrup for my boys and try to use natural remedies. If its a dry cough, then try gently boiling cloves (3-4) in half cup of water for a few min. Remove the liquid into a cup. Mix 1/4 cup warm milk with a few drops of the clove liquid and some honey and give to your child twice a day.A tsp of honey with pinch of freshly ground pepper also works wonders. I also switch to lukewarm water for the kids to drink whenever they have a cough as it just soothes the throat.I hope your daughter feels better soon.
Honey to soothe the throat and Calpol if she's in pain or has a fever. Cough medicines are not recommended for anyone any more, certainly not for children.ETA: How old is she? There are cough medicines that may be 'OK' for over 4's but all they do is mask the symptoms. You're really best to see a good GP if she's really suffering and find how to treat the cause.edited by Green-ish on 12/01/2012
a large tablespoon of organic honey works great.
If you are interested in natural healing then try this .take 2 parts of fennel seeds. 1 [part Ajwaen seeds(see indien store like Aladeel) or (Lulu hyper market)fry them together in a skillet or frying pan.it can burn easily.so get a metal or wooden spoon to take care of it while frying with out oil.when it start changing its color little bit and leav fragrance.remove from heat.let it come to the room temp. grind it and mix white sugar according to taste.give it to your doughter One fourth to half a tspoon two times a day.2 take fennel seeds 1 tsp honey 1 table spon.boil it 250ml of water for around 15 minutes on medium high .when the water reduced to half of its quantity remove from the source of heat.let it cum to the luke warm tamp.divide the liuid in 2 parts.take half in the morning and half in the eve.hope it will be useful for you.take care
I'm not sure if they have vicks cough medicine here, we did get a menthol mild children's cough syrup a while ago called Dulsana but I don't think it really helped my daughter's caugh. Last time one of my children had a really bad cough we got her Prospan which has Ivy Leaves and it really did work. We rarely give our children cough medicine and try honey and lemon, vics, olbas etc first but as her cough was really bad I gave her prospan and her cough improved very quickly.
do they not have vicks cough medicine or something with menthol and camphor and all that kind of stuff to sooth a cough and sore throat? I've asked several dr's and pharmacists on several occasions and all I get given is ivy leaf extract or last time they prescribed me medicine to treat a cough, but it's "highly addictive" so use sparingly!! One of my girls has a bad cough (again) and I just don't know what to give her to sooth it!!
