User rating for this question
Hi, my 11 month baby has hoarse voice since about a day. She has been screaming since a few days but I am not sure whether that has caused it. she has not been crying excessively. Should I wait for her voice to get better or take her to a pediatrician?

Brief Answer: Decoction of tulsi will be beneficial Detailed Answer: Hi Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Dear XXXX The hoarseness of voice is possibly related to screaming and crying. If the breathing movements of baby are normal ( there is no hurried breathing), no fever, excepting feeds well, playful and sleeps well then there seems to be no cause for concern. For her hoarseness I would suggest you the following 1. Warm tomato or chicken soup 2. Decoction: To cup of milk + 10 Tulsi leaves + 2 gms of fresh ginger + 2 black pepper + 1 spoon of turmeric + 1 spoon of sugar. Bring it to boil. Filter it and cool it so that it's warm. Feed the baby with watti and spoon. . It will be very soothening to the baby. If the symptom persists then visit your Pediatrician. I wish and hope that other than this symptom she is fine. Being a Parent myself I understand your concern and apprehension. Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.
