Brief Answer: detailed below Detailed Answer: Dear Damanjeet Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your son's health concern. 1. since problem is for the last 4-5 days and since suffering from syndrome of respiratory problems, it seems that there is acute attack of Asthmatic bronchitis [as also suggested by use of inhaler], probably due to some infection and since age is 2.5 years it is best to get an opinion of child specialist for clinical examination and chest X- ray. PS. start giving following dietary Regime with Medicine . Avoid deep fried foods, too cold food, sour foods [non fresh curd, raw onion, sour lassi] sour fruits [citrus fruits, sour grapes] . Avoid giving heavy meal and give warm drinks often like tea, coffee, soups. . Give sweet fruits like apple, papaya, mango, dry fruits. . In food give leafy vegetables like palak, methi, cabbage and salads like beet, carrot, cucumber. . Avoid causative factors like heavy beans,fried,oily, chilled food, exposure to cold wind/dust and damp weather,chemicals and infections. 2. If skin is dry,itchy with blood, consult with a skin specialist to rule out Eczema or there is too much cold or hot [where you live] with low or no humidity?? PS. since ointment is asked for his ailment you can take following prescription medicines : . BAN Baby Oil [BAN] apply and massage gently on the entire body for comfort and relaxation. . Elegance Oil [zandu] . neem oil + maha marichyadi oil [in equal quantities] for local massage [baidyanath].. very effective . apply raw papaya paste. . fry some garlic pods in mustard oil and massage with that oil. Do let me know his Immunization status, [whether complete till date] so that Immunomodulators from Ayurveda side which helps in increasing Immunity of the child can be initiated.

my 11 year old daughter has brown flaky patches of skin on the back side of her hands. I believe this is eczema so I ve been using vaseline and hydrocortizone. My question is if it is ok or makes sense to lubricate her hands and possibly keep them in a cotton glove or something to maintain the moisture or will this dry them out?
