Dear Dr, My son is 4 yrs old. He often get cough&Cold. He is also underweight. When he sleeps he breathes from mouth and also snores loudly. Last week he had ear infection and treated with antibiotics. Now he is continously coughing. Doctor took xray and found large adenoids. please advice suitable treatment and premanent solution.

Dear Mr Kaushik

Its a common problem with children these days. Try to take precautions too. Avoid cold and heavy food. Give him lots of warm water in day. dont give curd or sour foods. If you can boil ginger in milk. As he is underweight too he is getting infection more frequently.

give him sitopaladi churan with equal parts of talispatradi churn with honey 1/4 spoon thrice a day. arvindasav 1 spoon after meals with equal water twice a day. Do let me know after 2 months else we need to make some formulations for him.

Health and Peace
