Does your child get frequent Upper Respiratory Tract Infections?

Upper Respiratory Tract Infections

In my last 8 years of practice, many children with frequent Upper Respiratory Tract Infection (URTI) have come to me and Homoeopathy has never disappointed them. URTI is a major concern for many parents and they feel helpless after every episode their child goes through repeatedly.

Upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) are illnesses caused by an acute infection that involve the upper respiratory tract including the nose, sinuses, pharynx or larynx. 

Some common Upper Respiratory Tract Infections are: 

         Cold (This includes allergic rhinitis, viral, bacterial infection, etc.)





         Otitis media, etc. 

Let us look at some common symptoms of URTI one by one. 


        Nasal obstruction

        Nasal discharge

        Irritation and itching in the nose

        Postnasal discharge

        Sneezing, etc.


        Irritation, pain or redness in the throat

        Cough with or without expectoration

        Difficulty in swallowing food

        Hoarseness of voice or difficulty in speaking, etc.


        Pain in ears

        Discharge from ears

        Decreased hearing 

        Blockage of ears, etc.

Each symptom and some group of symptoms can help us diagnose as mentioned above. Sometimes, these symptoms can be associated with irritation and discharge from eyes, fever, malaise, body ache, headache or weakness.


        Hyper-reactive immune response causing all allergic problems  

        Viral infection

        Bacterial infection

        Poor immunity because of multiple factors like poor nutrition, protein-deficient diet, lack of sleep, poor hygiene or surrounding environment, some underlying immune-deficiency disease, etc.

We have observed that children start getting recurrent infections usually after going to school. 


Immunity can be improved and recurrent infections can be prevented by following simple measures unless there is some underlying cause of poor immunity. 

        Proper balanced nutrition and disciplined food habits

        Physical activity (playing outdoors)

        Adequate sound sleep

        Hygienic surroundings

        Mental well being (At family, school, peer level, etc.)


Homoeopathic treatment includes understanding all the factors mentioned above in assessing the cause of recurrent infections. After understanding the personality of the child, suitable Homoeopathic medicine is selected. Homoeopathic treatment can be given to even a day old child. It is very safe and gentle.


How does Homoeopathy work for recurrent infections?

Homoeopathy is used to treat acute infections and reduce the frequency and intensity of infections. It improves the child’s immunity so that the child does not fall prey to infections repeatedly and his/her innate ability to fight the infections is developed. 

 I have seen children being bombarded with antibiotics every time they get these episodes even if they are viral or allergic, which weakens their immunity further. One thing which should be kept in mind as a parent is:


Even if you are opting for Allopathic medicines, 

        Viral infections should be treated symptomatically or with anti-viral drugs in some cases

        Allergic symptoms should be treated with anti-allergic and symptomatic treatment

        Only and only if the infection is bacterial, should be treated with Antibiotics. Complete the whole course of antibiotics if started, do not leave it halfway. It makes bacteria resistant. 


Have a Healthy and Happy childhood for your child with Homoeopathy!
