Dear Mama to Many, what is your recommendation to help with kids ages 4 - 6 years old who are having difficulty getting over colds and who get colds a lot? Thanks.
I have just found out today, that a 6 MOUNTH OLD BABY GIRL will have to have surgery for a CLOGGED TEAR DUCT in April. Doctor said infection could spread or blindness could occur if surgery was not preformed. I believe the baby's weight to 12 to 15 pounds.There is no other name that has been given by the doctor. ( He just says clogged tear duct )
So I am believing this to be some kind of infections, since the doctor said it can spread...
Ted or anyone have any natural remedies for this???
I believe the mother has massaged the eye and put warm cloths on it. None of this has helped.

My almost 4 year old daughter has been very sick for two weeks with one of the above, she saw two different GPs who said different things and both prescribed antibiotics which I didn't want to use (and didn't), but surfing the net in desperation for my little girl who was in so much pain I could barely touch her.
I found this website. I gave her a tbsp of extra virgin coconut oil and made a warm drink with Apple Cider Vinegar and she was so much better when she woke up at 6 am. She has had 2 tsp of coconut oil straight out of the jar this morning and her extremely swollen neck is nearly gone completely and all other symptoms have subsided. I must add that over two weeks there were no signs at all of improvement and I am so relieved and stunned and overjoyed. Thank you Earth Clinic and thank you to all who have contributed. I am now giving the same to hubby who has come down with symptoms this morning and PS901E will report back. I have also administered Echinacea, Vitamin C and Manuka honey 20 throughout and hubby is having these too.
Does anyone have any natural remedies for cold sores in a baby's mouth? My grandson has a huge coldsore in his mouth and a rash on the trunk of his body. Went to ER... They said have to do bloodwork to see if it is herpes. Meanwhile, he won't eat or drink. Slept 13 hours straight. His mother is beside herself with worry. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Love this website! Upset grandmother!
My son is 13 months old. His mother was diagnosed 4 weeks ago with a sinus infection. She then developed a pretty nasty cough. 3 weeks later, still the same. Then I get sick. I have the same cough, headaches and sinus pain and fever. Mom gets all these symptoms as well, plus sore throat and red spots on the throat, swollen glands. The doctor tells us he thinks we have the flu. The next day our son gets a cough and then a fever.
We are first time parents and I have never been too hip to American medicine. I just found this site today and I am super excited!! I am excited to do the H2O2 remedies and Apple cider vinegar...and prob a bunch of others.
Bottom line is my son has been sleeping and running a high fever.... Doctors pretty much tell us we have to wait it out... I think mom is going to have an anxiety attack worrying about our little boy.
There is a lot of good information on here for flu symptoms but nothing is specific for babies.........
I am in need of some specific things to do for a 13 month old.
Thank you so very much!!!!

Hi, Cradle cap and even baby acne for my son was cured in about a week. I used Colloidal Silver to cure the acne, it's gentle enough to even put in a babies eyes, so this is fine. I even gave him a few drops in his mouth usually every day, he was not sick until 7 months old when a doc told me to stop using it. Anyway, I used a cotton ball to apply the silver (or clean fingers), then put Pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil on his dry/acne skin. Within a week or so it was gone! My baby had acne even on his earlobes...

Congestion/Cough remedy for Infant
Our 9 month old daughter is congested and has a cough that sounds like she is trying to expel mucous. She gets this every so often thanks to daycare and it seems like antibiotics her doctor prescribes don't really fix the problem. Are there any natural remedies I can use with her? I hate pumping her full of medicine. Many thanks!

Help with baby constipation
Please help- I have a nine month old girl at home with a chronic constipation problem for the last 6 months. If I let her go on her own she may have a BM once or twice a week and they are very painful for her to pass and very large. The doctors are not much help and I've done everything they have suggested with little change and even that only temporary.
I have tried the following: baby laxative consisting of magnesium citrate, changing formulas (from Enfamil lipil to Enfamil gentle ease-helped for about 3 weeks, earths best organic, and a couple of others), raw milk from Jersey cows, omega 3 supplement, probiotic, fresh fruit including peaches, pears, apples, apple juice, pears juice at least 4-5 oz a day which worked for 2 days then stopped working I stopped giving it to her because I feel that is too much juice, fresh blended spinach, Epsom salt baths, massage with almond oil and lavender essential oil, q-tip with Vaseline,
thermometer with Vaseline both inserted to stimulate a movement, steamed broccoli, raw garlic, dark corn syrup, concord grape juice diluted, aloe vera juice and now against what I believe to be nutritious soy formula. I give her liquid suppositories to make her go but she is now holding her BM in because it is so painful for her. I am trying enemas to help but she tenses up before I can insert them and I don't want to hurt her. Please if anyone knows of something I have missed please tell me.
I don't know what else to do for her. She's had an X-Ray which came back normal- nothing keeping her from having a BM. Also she only began having this problem when I began supplementing her with formula when I wasn't producing enough milk. While she was on breast milk she had no issues. But when I went back to work I slowly lost my supply and since then she has had this problem.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
My 2 month baby has cough I don't want to give her antibiotic what should I do ? Plz tell me some home remedies. Advance tnx.

We are battling our son's (18months) rashes for 7 month now. He has dermatitis and it all started when he dropped when he started to walk. He got a little wound on his chin that was already red because of denting. It turned infected an spread from his chin further below and a third spot, all in line. After doctors recommendation we applied oral antibiotics and than it turned really bad. Since then it is a non ending nightmare. We tried anything (colloidal silver, tea tree, manuka oil, manuka honey. Since three weeks we are on Apple Cider Vinegar and Virgin Coconut Oil. One spot is closed but the other two not. We are desperate and frustrated. One day it looks better and the other is back open wound weeping, is always red and dry around the weeping spot. My wife is still breastfeeding fortunately. We sleep with him (for all this time)to avoid the scratching. We don't know anymore what to do and would appreciate any help... Thx a lot to e.c. Many remedies have helped but we haven't found the key solution.

Hello everybody, Children's remedies-activated charcoal and turmeric for kids diarrhea - I am so happy to have found the feedback on turmeric and activated charcoal for children's diarrhea. My 17 month old had severe diarrhea from a stomach flu that has been going around our home. He had already had 4 diarrhea diapers before I hopped on earth clinic (wasn't aware they started a children's remedy section) it immediately helped!
i mashed up one banana and mixed it with 1/3 280 mg capsule and est 1/3 tsp of turmeric, I added a little honey too to make sure he would eat it. Normally he feeds himself and gets 1/2 of it on his bib and high chair tray. So instead I approached him in the living room and just kept shoveling in his mouth (he was willing but I didn't want him to sense any after taste) while saying "mmm mmm it's good" Lol! That's stopped diarhea for another 5 hours so I just kept giving him it more frequently afterwards sometimes just a 1/2 banana and would you believe it has kept his diarhea at bay! ?! I was beginning to think I'd have to take him to the E.R. Room or something. Please, please everybody please submit your feedback so we can build up this portion of Earthclinic!!!
My 11 month old baby had diarrhea for several days due to teething. I knew charcoal would help, but he isn't much for cooperating with eating what I don't want him to eat. However, we spend all day keeping him from eating whatever he finds on the floor! I put a charcoal tablet on the floor in front of him. He ate it. I did this a couple of times that day and it really helped his diarrhea. If he took a bottle, I would have mixed 1/2 t. Of charcoal powder in 4 oz of water and given it to him that way. Everyone should keep charcoal on hand for every day things, especially accidental poisoning!
Tumeric is an excellent spice for easing Diarrhea. My toddler had 'toddler Diarrhea', and I just had to keep him on a basic diet of water, rice, toast and bananas. The GP told me I couldn't give him anything like Imodium due to its side effects in young children.
I stuck to this diet, with minimum effect. After a couple of weeks, I contacted the GP again and he told me to add soy milk and skinless chicken to my son's diet. A week passed and it helped a little, but it was only by accident, when I read about an old Persian dish 'Tumeric Chicken', (I was on a diet then and was looking for low cal meals *lol*) that I read that it was good for 'many stomach ailments'.
I gave it a go and my toddler tried it and loved it. Better still within 2 days my son's chronic Diarrhea had gone completely and now he's thriving brilliantly. I would recommend it to everyone, it literally is, steamed chicken, a dash of tumeric and steamed onion. I served it with plain boiled rice and not only is it delic, it really helped my weight loss and my toddler's Diarrhea... Now that's what I call a SUPER SPICE!
My 2 yr old baby has had Diarrhea for the past 8 days. the doctors prescribed amoxillin but he still has is. what do you recommend? Please I need help. Thank you.
