Your children suffer from wheezing bronchitis\ mild asthma\ allergy.
Believe me, that we are fortunate that we can give medicines via inhalation instead of orally or by injections.
Children used to suffer from these diseases previously also. When l was an intern in 1967, we used to admit many babies in hospital for giving these same medicines by Intravenous drip, as inhalation therapy was not discovered. Giving these medicines by injections or orally have many side effects, so we used to give these only for 5 to 6 days, After that they would be better but not normal. The result is they could not play or lead a normal life.
Now days more children suffer from these diseases, but as I said, some children previously also used to suffer.
Giving budecort (steroids) and livolin(anti spasm), by inhalation is the best way of giving these medicines.The medicines go directly to lungs where they are needed. If you give them orally they go to stomach, then to blood and then to all the organs in the body and then to lungs, that is why they have so many side effects.
By giving them as inhalers these have no side effects as the medicines go to lungs and no where else.This therapy is not habit forming. Your children will need them as long as they suffer from these problems. Once they are better they will not need them.
You will find more information about this in my book in chapter Asthma,at easybabycare.net.
Do write to me if you have any further queries.

      Dear Sharik

      When your baby has fever, cold and cough, this is not allergy, this is infection. Every child will get infections 5 to 6 times in an year. When children get infections they do not eat anything, once they are better they start eating again.

      You can give home medicines no harm done, however if fever is very high then you will need to give paracetamol.Usually these infections subsides without antibiotics.

      Give your child normal well-balanced diet. You can look up in my book easybabycare in chapter on diet for well-balanced diet.

      When fever subsides child will sweat. It does not matter if the sweat is in the head.

        Hello doctor can my child get from this infection permanently and is this infection realated to Asthma .
        I am using my son homeopathy too.
        Can u say that by which cause he is getting infection several times

      • Sharik Says:

        Hi doctor thanks for ur reply.For my 6 month baby also we are using levolin and budecort respules is these medicines affecte her by anyways
        For how long my son and daughter should use these medicines plz help me knowing that time period

      • rajrani Says:

        Dear Sharik,

        As I said, all children get infections, now and then. Infections lasts for few days and then they are better. After a few days or a month or two, they will get infection again. They get infection from environment. This is part of growing up. You can not prevent it.

        Asthma is due to allergy. Child may have wheezing when he has infection or he may have it when he does not also.

        My advice is to use budecort and livolin as long as child has wheezing. Once he is better , stop livolin and continue budecort for another 5 to 6 days and then stop it. However if he gets wheezing again start both the medicines again, and use it again as long as he needs it.

        Hello doctor thanks again
        1. I have doubt in feeding my son can he eat all type of foods like fruits,dryfruits,veggies,no begs and eggs.

        2.dose nuts or dry fruits cause any allergy for him.

        3.This type of infection was related to his and my 6 month baby growth (I mean by having good immunity dose my child and daughter can get free from this infection or allergy)

        Can we use olive oil for food and ghee,butter,cheese
        Can I use raagi java,saggubeyam for him and 6 month baby also

      • rajrani Says:

        When you give your children some food item for the first time and he comes up in rash, then you know that he is allergy to that food item. Otherwise you can give your children all the type of food that is eaten in Indian homes. Give them well balanced diet.

        Read the chapter on diet in the book available at easybabycare.net

    Hello Dr.

    My 6 months old Daughter has dry coughing and cold since one month. I was using ascoril LS, Tixylix, nd Nasoclear as prescribed by our Dr. But not much relief after the doses. Coughing enhance at the tym of sleep and sometimes she throw up the milk in lied down position. Now my Dr has advised to give budecard 0.5 mg for two three days. Can you advise for side effects of budecard at this age and how soon she will be reliefed by nabulosing.

    • rajrani Says:

      Dear Sunaina
      Side effects of giving budecort by nebulizer is almost nil.it is less than the oral medicines that you were giving. To releive the cough you may have to give livolin by nebulizer also.
      It is not possible to tell you as to how long it will take for these to cure the cough. Once your child is cough free, do give budecort for few more days and then stop it.
      If you haven’t, do look up my book , on easybabycare.net, and read the chapter on prevention of allergy. Try to take precautions, as directed.
      Do let me know if any other queries.
