As winter arrives, the risk of cough and cold increase and often out babies and toddlers get sick.

Giving medicines is important but we should always first try some home remedies to fight the general cold.

Home remedies do not cure the cold and cough but surely help prevention to get worse and feel better.

Some medications may have antibodies and antibiotics in them which somehow makes immunity system weak. So, always limit the amount of medicines you and your family intake for general cold and cough. Try remedies and medication and you will be better in no time!
