My boy just recover from phelgm and flu (running nose and block nose).
So scary...as at nite keep crying as cannot breathe.. any good remedy?
My gal also has a bout of runny nose a couple of days ago.. used sterimar (to wash her nose), a nasal aspirator to suck out her phlegm and used eucalyptus oil (one to two drops on a hanky to be place on her bed). She is now much better!
Eucalyptus oil is very effective.
When my boy gets blocked nose, we will rub Eagle Brand Eucalyptus oil on his chest and back.
When I get blocked nose, my hubs will drip some eucalyptus oil at the aircon (cos I hate the spicy feeling on my skin).
Works very well to allow us to breathe better when we sleep. The Eagle brand eucalyptus oil has a baby version in a pink circular bottle, not so spicy when applied on baby
Actually if you use the eagle brand one still ok. Not very strong
for me i rub cherry chest rub on pin's back n chest n also on the soles of her feet n then cover with socks. her nose gets better after a night's sleep.
for me it helps. but everyone is diff.well, no harm trying, even my mum uses this method after she sees me doing it for pin. LOL.
dont wry, they r bound to lose weight (n fats) when they fall sick, but they will regain in quickly too.
when pin had HFMD, she lost a couple of kgs, but after she recovered, she gained them all back within 2 weeks. haha!
My friend recommended me this item from iherb:
Nature's Baby Organics, Ah-Choo! Chest Rub, Eucalyptus, 2 fl oz (60 ml) - iHerb.com
I bought one too and I find that it's ok. My dear daughter also doesn't really complain much
hi my baby nose inside also got sticky mucus, can anyone teach mw hw to clear it out?the nose so small, my finger cant even go in.
my son just had blocked nose last 2 days i just apply vicks on his chest n abit on his nose n his fine now...
But you must apply frequently...
actually HFMD isnt anything serious (though there r very rare cases which might lead to complications), just that it is quite painful (blisters) n uncomfy for the child.
