Having sever cough, accompanied by cold. What can be done to reduce it ?

HI my daughter is 2.5 yrs old and she is having sever cough, accompanied by cold. In the night she coughs too much and pukes what she would have had for the dinner. My daughter has this problem of flem from childhood, i tried her giving syrups like ventroline and relent nothing worked. Can u suggest some good medicine for this. Also my daughter has this frequent omitting, which i feel is becoz of the flem. I give her 2 glass of milk every day. Does milk products and milk, increase the flem? What can be done to reduce it. Any fruits or any kind of food can reduce the flem ?

hi,accordind to ayurveda your child is suffering from kapha related disorder,such things are incresed by milk so instead of giving her plain milk you can add little honey in warm milk,give her sitopladi choornam(ayurvedic medicine) half teaspoon with honey daily,one teaspoon chavanprash ,daily two times a day.

I would like to know some details about the pt. like her weight , associated complaints like fever , nasal congestion or discharge ,her birth history premature or full term /normal /LSCS etc. according to ayurveda childhood is more prone for kapha related disorder & it is more affect in kapha temprament child. Milk & milk products increases kapha related disorded so it should be avoided & if you should want to give her than small quantity of drided ginger powder is mixed with it. for further recurrence you can give her syrup Immumod (Merind) 3ml. thrice in day for 2 - 3 months .it contain tinosphora cardifolia (Guduchi). it boost up immune sytem of child.for safer side please do Complete blood count .
