Dear Mr XXXXXXX

Keeping the lactation status of your wife , I would advise you the following which will definitely be helpful

1. Steam Inhalation: 15 to 20 minutes each session preferably using electronic steamer
2. Warm Saline Gargling: To a glass of lukewarm water add 2 spoons of salt, gargle thrice a day
3. Decoction: to a cup of milk+ 10 tulsi leaves+ 1 spoon turmeric+ 2 gm frsh ginger+ 2 black pepper+ 2 spoon of sugar. Boil it, filter it and let her consume it hot thrice a day
4. Betadaine Mouth gargles: Gargle the throat with it thrice a day. Alternate it with warm saline gargling
5. Anti-tussive decongestatnt: Syrup Ascoril D 7 ml thrice a day
6. Anti-histaminic: Tablet Cetrizine 10 mg twice a day for 3 days
7. Himalaya Koflet lozenges for chewing 5 to 6 times a day.

Do not worry majority of respiratory infection are viral in origin. Symptomatic treatment is all that is required.
