If the cause is always eating of sweets and fresh milk then she can be allergic to some of its constituents. Try to avoid for some time. In ayurveda milk and milk products increase kaph so they can cause running nose. In general just add a pinch of turmeric to her hot milk, this will check recurrence. basilleaves and cloves in milk render it to be not kaph increasing while turmeric increases immunity.

Hi welcome to health care magic

does your child has fever with running nose?.. it is common in the childhood.. avoid much of antibiotics, personal hygiene must be maintained.. once the immunity of the body develop then Upper respiratory tract infection will come down.. just antihistaminics is enough during illness..

Ayurvedic treatment- firt of all stop her giving milk at night especially lie going to be which is the main cause,second give her milk when sun is in the sky i.e. In the day time so that it will be easy to digest it,third even though she is having running nose add a small piece of dry ginger and boil for few minutes and give,there will be no problem.internal medicine- sitopaladi choorna- pinch of ot three times in a day with honey.avoid liquid food while putting her to bed like juice etc.take care.

I would like to know birth history of you child weight & Hight of your child etc. Running nose may be due to allergic responce of body to eliminate the allergen. If your child do not has any sign of infection like fever , rashes than avoid to use antibiotic .start some immune buster like syrup Immumode (contain tinosphoria cardifolia i.e. guduhi or gudvel) Wockheart Medind for 2 - 3 months. I try to rule out the cause as per ayurveda milk is kapha vardhaka .so try to avoid it or gives it along with small quantity of shunthi powder.

Dear Deepa,
I would like to know a few things like does she have any associated cough? does she sometimes have nose block as well, is her sleep disturbed , does she sleep with her mouth open at night? any family history of similar complaints ?
Allergic rhinitis is a commonly occurring condition but can impair the quality of life if not treated earliest.
Recurrent infections is sign of lowered immunity. Avoid frequent use of antibiotics as these help just temporarily, and do not tackle the underlying cause. Homeopathy on the other hand is a safe and effective solution, which acts by improving the immunity , reducing the frequency and intensity of the complaints and helping her breathe comfortably. Also since homeopathic medicines are sweet, children enjoy taking them.

In the meanwhile-
1)Clean and dust your house regularly to avoid collection of dust.
2)Vacuum the bed, sofa and other areas where dust generally gets collected, regularly.
3)Change the bedsheet and pillow covers atleast 2/ wk
4) Give her freshly cooked food and avoid giving her food kept in the refrigerator.

Visit a nearby homeopath for treatment as homeopathy would be of immense help to rid her of her complaints effectively and is beneficial in the long run.

I m military and in basic and AIT (both located in GA) I developed a odd sounding chronic cough. I went through numerous tests to include XRAY, Methacholine challenge, GERD, Allergy and others I can t recall. I also have rhinitis which I m told by the allergist is not due to any allergy (I had a full skin test). It mostly subsided when I was stationed in Ft Lewis, WA while I was taking flonase and zyrtec. I ve since been stationed at Hunter AAF, GA and now the cough is back in full force and my rhinitis is no longer controlled by flonase. An allergist back at fort gordon told me it was cough variant asthma( after successfully reducing the symptoms with prednisone and then advair) but the pulmonologist at both fort gordon and fort lewis insist that I don t have asthma. While my symptoms are present I have a shortness of breath during running and similar exercises but to a lesser extent in washington. I had no issues during my deployment to Iraq (my 2 mile run times dropped four minutes with no changes in behavior) I was 18 when in Basic and AIT and now am 22 soon to be 23. Any ideas?
