Causes of Nasal Congestion in kids: 8 Ways to Relieve

Baby’s stuffy or runny nose is a matter of concern for every parent but also unavoidable due to their still maturing immune system. Stuffed-up noses are caused by inflammation of the sensitive membranes that line the nasal cavity, and they’re usually nothing to worry about. Nasal obstruction is when the nasal passages are blocked, or there is difficulty breathing from the nose. This is very common in babies and toddlers. Especially it is troublesome for newborns younger than 2 months, as they don’t know how to sniff or blow their nose while adults and older children can blow their noses to help clear their nasal passages. The most common causes for nasal congestion and runny nose in infants and children are infections, mainly of viral origin, or allergies

Symptoms of nasal congestion

A child with nasal congestion may also have these symptoms

  • Stuffy or Runny nose
  • Sneezing or coughing
  • Itchy eyes, nose, mouth and throat
  • Reduced sense of smell or taste
  • Has difficulty breathing or is unable to breathe
  • Noisy breathing
  • Body aches
  • Recurrent, severe respiratory infection
  • Problem in falling asleep. (some foods that help in sound sleep)
  • Difficulty in feeding
Causes For nasal congestion

Nasal congestion can be caused by any of the following causes:

Cold and flu

Children catch colds when a virus comes in contact with the lining of the nose and throat. There are more than two hundred different viruses causing colds in children, but the Rhinovirus is the most common offender. The symptoms for cold include stuffy or runny nose and sneezing. (Home remedies for cold and flu)

Infection of the sinuses:

Sinuses are moist air spaces within the bones of the face around the nose. When they get infected and swell or become irritated, this is called sinusitis (or a sinus infection).  This infection usually causes nasal congestion.

Allergic rhinitis:

These are the symptoms that occur when you breathe in something you are allergic to, such as dust, animal dander, or pollen. Symptoms can also occur when you eat a food that you are allergic to. (What are some common food allergies in kids?)

Presence of irritants: 

Another prominent cause of blocked nose due to cold in children is the presence of irritants such as dust, smoke, or perfumes around the little one.

Foreign object in nostril:

Nasal congestion in toddlers can also be because of the insertion of small objects like a bead or a peanut by mistake, which make it difficult to breathe properly and need to be taken out immediately.

Large adenoids

When the tissue in the back of the nose in children is enlarged, this may also cause nasal congestion in kids.

When to see a doctor?

In most of the cases nasal congestion is minor and clears up within a few days. If you notice any of the following symptoms, please seek help from your baby’s doctor.

  • Have fever (How to control fever at home?)
  • Nasal discharge persists for more than 10 to 14 days
  • Greenish or bloody nasal discharge
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Your child is eating or drinking less or seems to be having trouble with feeding
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Your child is peeing less than normal
  • Ear pain.
  • A blue tint to skin around lips and nostrils.
Home remedies for nasal congestion

Taking proper care at home can help your baby to recover fast from nasal congestion. Below are some home remedies and foods that can help your baby.

Plenty of fluid:

Keep your child hydrated, this will help in thinning the mucus clogged in their nasal passage. If the baby is under 6 months, feed more breastmilk or formula milk and if the child is above 6 month you can offer warm water or other fluids. Give a small amount of fluid at a time but multiple times in a day. Apart from this you can also offer hot homemade soups, which are full of essential vitamins and minerals and are easy to digest. Avoid drinks with caffeine, including colas and tea, because they can make dehydration worse by increasing urination.

Saline solution:

This is the most important home remedy for a stuffy nose. Mix a teaspoon of table salt in warm water and pour the solution into your kid’s nostrils with the help of a dropper. This will directly impact the thinning of the mucus.

Warm  compress:

Warm compress is one of the traditional and proven remedies to open up the nasal passage. Soak a soft washcloth in the warm water, squeeze it well. Now place this over the nose. This will help your child in passing the mucus and eases the clogged nose. Repeat this in a regular interval.

Steam:

If your child has nasal congestion then giving them steam is the best thing to do. For small kids who can’t inhale steam themselves, turn on the shower up to its hottest setting and close the door and let the steam build up. Turn off the shower once the bathroom is full of steam, now sit there with your baby for sometime. Your baby will automatically inhale the steam. This will help in thinning of mucus and give your baby relief from nasal congestion.

Sleeping Position:

Keep your child’s head in an elevated position to give some relief from cough and blocked nose that perpetuates through the night. (How is sleep and brain development related?)

TURMERIC

Due to its antibacterial and anti-viral properties turmeric is one of the best foods for cold and flu season, known to treat viral infections. Adding turmeric powder to a glass of warm milk can offer relief in the aching throat and runny nose.

GINGER

Ginger roots have been used for centuries for health benefits in Asian cultures. Research shows that ginger has medicinal properties, both antiviral and antibacterial, that could help ease the symptoms of stuffy nose or sore throat. Take out some ginger juice by grating it and mix it with some honey. Give this mixture to your child above 1 year twice a day for quick relief (What are other Ayurvedic herbs that are good for kids?)

Massage

• Heat mustard oil and roast garlic and carom seeds in it. Once cool, apply this oil on the baby’s head, palm, feet base, chest and back. Leave it applied and let the child sleep. It will help settle the cold and cough both. Also, any body ache the child has will be resolved. Mustard oil is a very effective cough and cold home remedy.

• Take1 to 2 tbs of lukewarm mustard oil and mix half a teaspoon of rock salt. Then, massage this oil gently on the baby’s chest and back, cover with cotton cloth. The warmth of mustard oil helps in relieving congestion.

Prevention is better than cure

Do your child often fall sick with fever, cold and cough? The food we eat plays a key role in determining the overall health and immunity. It gives the body a condition of being able to resist a particular disease. By adding foods, like Nuts, Seeds, Ayurvedic herbs like Tulsi, Giloy, Turmeric, Amla, Ashwagandha and Antioxidants like Cocoa and Vitamin E to your kid’s diet you can prevent them from falling sick again and again by boosting their immunity.

Cough and Cold: Home Remedy and Foods that Help

cough and cold home remedy

With every changing season, the biggest concern amongst parents around the globe is to prevent their kids from cold, cough and flu. Children start to get cold and cough after about six months of age when the immunity they received from their mom fades and they have to build up their own immunity. Cough and cold is one of the most common complaints for which parents take their children to a doctor. Some cough and cold home remedy and foods can help to cure the symptoms and build immunity in kids. Understanding different types of cough helps to treat them better.

How cold and cough affects the immunity of a child?

Children catch cold or cough, when a virus comes in contact with the lining of nose and throat. There are more than two hundred different viruses causing cold and cough in children, but the Rhinovirus is the most common offender. The symptoms include stuffy or runny nose, sneezing and coughing. However, flu symptoms are more severe than cold and include fever, headache, sore throat, congestion. Every time when kids get infected with a specific virus, their immune system develops antibodies, which help them to fight against it next time. But there are lots of different viruses, so it takes time to build an effective immune system. Many a times, taking medicines for these symptoms can give immediate relief but affect the immunity of a child negatively.

Which foods can help to boost immunity in children?

Foods to avoid

Refined sugar: Sugar causes inflammation in the body which results in weaker immunity. Sugar damages the protein in our body, resulting in ageing of organs, which further compromises immunity, growth and functioning. Greatest source of sugar in the average kid’s diet are sugary snacks and beverages like cookies, cakes, candies, fruit juice, soda, and sports drinks. Everything that the child picks up to eat today has strains of added sugar in some form or the other.

Preservatives: most of the packaged food companies are adding artificial preservatives to delay spoilage and contamination in foods.  artificial preservatives such as nitrates, benzoates, sulfites, sorbates, parabens, formaldehyde, BHT, BHA and several others can cause serious health hazards such as hypersensitivity, allergy, asthma, hyperactivity, neurological damage.

Refined oil: The high temperature involved in the refining process removes all the natural and beneficial substances from the oil, which is not good for the digestive as well as respiratory health and ultimately affects your immunity.

बच्चे की इम्युनिटी बढ़ाने वाले खाद्य पदार्थ

immunity boosting food

आपका अपने बच्चे को अब तक का सबसे अच्छा उपहार है, एक स्वस्थ शरीर जो संक्रमण से लड़ने के लिए समर्थ है और जिसमें मज़बूत प्रतिरक्षा( इम्युनिटी) है। जीवन अब और अधिक कठिन है। बीमार होना या बीमार रहना एक बच्चे की जीवन यात्रा में सबसे बड़ी बाधा है। भोजन, जलवायु, खाने की आदतों और जीवन शैली से लेकर लगभग हर चीज में लगातार बदलाव हो रहा है । इस बदलते परिदृश्य में, प्रतिरक्षा एक प्रमुख भूमिका निभाती है और इसे इम्युनिटी बढ़ाने वाले खाद्य पदार्थ खिलाकर प्राप्त किया जा सकता है।

प्रतिरक्षा तंत्र (इम्यून  सिस्टम)

प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली कोशिकाओं (सेल्स ), ऊतकों (टिशूस ) और अंगों (ऑर्गन्स ), का एक जटिल नेटवर्क है जो न केवल आपके शरीर को हानिकारक रोग पैदा करने वाले वायरस और बैक्टीरिया से बचाती है बल्कि ऊतक ( टिशूस ) की मरम्मत और घाव भरने में भी सहायता करती है। कोरोना महामारी के संदर्भ में, हम केवल अपनी प्रतिरक्षा पर भरोसा कर सकते हैं ताकि हमें कोरोना रुपी युद्ध के मैदान से बचाया जा सके। कुछ हद तक, हमारी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली आनुवंशिकी (जेनेटिक्स) पर निर्भर करती है और यह हमारे दैनिक विकल्पों- भोजन और जीवन शैली से भी प्रमुख रूप से प्रभावित होती है।

बच्चे की रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता कैसे बढ़ाएं? इम्युनिटी बूस्टिंग एक व्यापक प्रक्रिया है जो कम उम्र से ही शुरू हो जाती है। जैसे-जैसे बच्चे बड़े होते हैं और प्रीस्कूल शुरू करते हैं, उन पर वायरस और बैक्टीरिया के हमले की संभावना अधिक होती है, जिससे सर्दी खांसी और अन्य संक्रमण होते हैं। इस प्रारंभिक अवस्था में प्रतिरक्षा का निर्माण महत्वपूर्ण हो जाता है।

प्रतिरक्षा को मजबूत करने के टिप्स:

  • अपने बच्चे को स्तनपान कराएं (अध्ययनों से पता चलता है कि यह बच्चों के लिए एक प्राकृतिक प्रतिरक्षा बूस्टर है)
  • बच्चे के टीकाकरण कार्यक्रम का पालन करें
  • बच्चों को पौष्टिक और स्वस्थ आहार खाने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करें
  • उचित आराम और नींद (अध्ययनों से संकेत मिलता है कि नींद और प्रतिरक्षा सकारात्मक रूप से संबंधित हैं)
  • स्वच्छ आदतों का विकास करना जैसे हाथ धोना और शरीर तथा वातावरण  को स्वच्छ  रखना ।
  • ताजी हवा और धूप तक पहुंच (बाहरी गतिविधियां और विटामिन डी दोनों ही रोग प्रतिरोधक क्षमता बढ़ाने में मदद करते हैं)
  • एंटीबायोटिक्स से बचें (जब तक आवश्यक न हो) क्योंकि वे शरीर में अच्छे बैक्टीरिया को कम करते हैं जो प्रतिरक्षा का निर्माण करते हैं

विटामिन सी, विटामिन डी, जिंक, सेलेनियम, आयरन और प्रोटीन जैसे प्रतिरक्षा कोशिकाओं के विकास और कार्यों के लिए कुछ पोषक तत्वों की आवश्यकता होती है। पोषक तत्वों से भरपूर भोजन और संतुलित आहार पर ध्यान देना आपके बच्चे की प्रतिरोधक क्षमता को बढ़ाने का सबसे अच्छा तरीका है। इम्युनिटी बूस्टर के लिए कुछ बेहतरीन खाद्य पदार्थ नीचे दिए गए हैं:

इम्युनिटी बढ़ाने वाले खाद्य पदार्थ:

सब्जियां:

अध्ययन से पता चलता है कि सब्जियां बीटा-कैरोटीन (विटामिन ए), विटामिन सी और विटामिन ई जैसे पोषक तत्व प्रदान करती हैं जो बच्चों के लिए प्राकृतिक प्रतिरक्षा बूस्टर के रूप में कार्य कर सकती हैं। कई सब्जियां अन्य एंटीऑक्सिडेंट से भी भरपूर होती हैं जो शरीर में मुक्त कणों को कम करने में मदद करती हैं (मुक्त कण क्या हैं?) सब्जियां अक्सर प्रीबायोटिक फाइबर का अच्छा स्रोत होती हैं जो आंत में रहने वाले अच्छे बैक्टीरिया का भोजन बनकर स्वस्थ आंत और प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली का समर्थन करती हैं। अपने बच्चे को एक दिन में ब्रोकोली, पालक, बेल पेपर, टमाटर, गाजर, और चुकंदर जैसी सभी रंगों की सब्जियां खाने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करने से प्रतिरक्षा को उच्च रखने के लिए आवश्यक कई विटामिन और खनिजों का ध्यान रखा जाएगा। (बच्चों को पूरा पोषण कैसे दें?)

खट्टे फल:

बच्चों के लिए इम्युनिटी बूस्टर के लिए खट्टे फलों को सबसे अच्छे इम्युनिटी बढ़ाने वाले खाद्य पदार्थों में से एक माना जाता है। सभी खट्टे फलों में विटामिन सी एक प्रमुख घटक है। विटामिन सी संक्रमण से लड़ने वाली श्वेत रक्त कोशिकाओं के उत्पादन को बढ़ाकर आपकी प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को बनाने में मदद करता है। संतरा, अमरूद, अंगूर, नींबू और कीवी जैसे फल विटामिन सी से भरपूर होते हैं। (बच्चों और किशोरों के लिए सर्वश्रेष्ठ फल?)

अदरक:

अदरक अपने अद्भुत औषधीय गुणों के लिए जाना जाता है | अदरक का उपयोग कई आयुर्वेदिक दवाओं में एक सक्रिय घटक के रूप में किया गया है। विटामिन बी6 और मैग्नीशियम से भरपूर अदरक में जिंजरोल (अदरक में मौजूद फोटोकैमिकल कंपाउंड जो जीभ पर मसाला रिसेप्टर्स को सक्रिय करता है) होता है जो इम्युनिटी को बढ़ाने में मदद करता है। इसमें एंटी-बैक्टीरियल और एंटी-इंफ्लेमेटरी गुण भी होते हैं, जो संक्रमण से लड़ने में मदद करते हैं। (बच्चों में सर्दी का इलाज करने का घरेलू उपाय जो वास्तव में काम करता है?)

मेवे:

पिस्ता, बादाम, काजू, अखरोट और अन्य नट्स में पाया जाने वाला विटामिन ई बैक्टीरिया से लड़ने में प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली की मदद करता है। वे एंटीऑक्सिडेंट का एक बड़ा स्रोत हैं जो मुक्त कणों को निष्क्रिय करके और सूजन को कम करके शरीर को स्वस्थ और रोग मुक्त रखते हैं। अध्ययन से पता चलता है कि कुछ भुने हुए मेवों में कच्चे की तुलना में अधिक एंटीऑक्सीडेंट स्तर होता है। (कुछ उच्च मेवे और बीज क्या हैं?)

दालचीनी:

यह सुगंधित मसाला सभी मसालों में एंटीऑक्सिडेंट का सबसे समृद्ध स्रोत है जो प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को बढ़ावा देता है। एंटीवायरल, एंटीफंगल और जीवाणुरोधी गुणों से भरपूर, जो सर्दी और फ्लू जैसे संक्रमण पैदा करने वाले वायरस से लड़ते हैं। दालचीनी प्रतिरक्षा बूस्टर के लिए सबसे अच्छे खाद्य पदार्थों में से एक है।

मोरिंगा:

मोरिंगा एक जादुई पेड़ है जिसमें बहुत सारे स्वास्थ्य लाभ जुड़े हुए हैं। इस पेड़ का हर हिस्सा जैसे जड़, छाल, फल, फूल और पत्ते विटामिन, खनिज और एंटीऑक्सीडेंट से भरपूर होते हैं। पत्ते कैल्शियम और आयरन जैसे विटामिन ए, बी, सी खनिजों का अच्छा स्रोत हैं, जो इसे बच्चों के लिए इम्युनिटी बढ़ाने वाले खाद्य पदार्थ बनाता है। प्रतिरक्षा के अलावा यह हड्डियों के विकास, आयरन की कमी से लड़ने और मांसपेशियों के निर्माण में भी मदद करता है। (स्वस्थ दृष्टि के लिए आसान भोजन क्या है?)

बीज:

बीज पोषक तत्वों का अविश्वसनीय स्रोत हैं। सब्जा के बीज ओमेगा 3 (अल्फा-लिनोलेनिक एसिड) से भरपूर होते हैं और फ्लेवोनोइड्स से भी भरे होते हैं जो दोनों ही प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को मजबूत रखने में मदद करते हैं। सूरजमुखी के बीज मैग्नीशियम, विटामिन ई, एंटीऑक्सिडेंट और अच्छे वसा से भरपूर होते हैं। साथ में वे प्रतिरक्षा को बढ़ावा देने में मदद करते हैं। तिल के बीज जिंक से भरपूर होते हैं जो शरीर की कोशिकाओं को बैक्टीरिया और वायरस से बचाकर स्वस्थ प्रतिरक्षा में सहायता करते हैं। कद्दू के बीज विटामिन ई से भरपूर होते हैं जो प्रतिरक्षा निर्माण के लिए आवश्यक होते हैं और साथ ही हड्डियों के निर्माण के लिए अन्य पोषक तत्वों जैसे पोटेशियम, मैग्नीशियम और विटामिन के से भी भरपूर होते हैं। (मस्तिष्क के लिए कुछ अच्छे बीज क्या हैं?)

करक्यूमिन/ हल्दी :

हल्दी में पाया जाने वाला एक यौगिक चिकित्सीय राहत प्रदान करता है। हल्दी विटामिन ए, थायमिन (बी1), राइबोफ्लेविन (बी2) और विटामिन सी से भी भरपूर होती है और बच्चों के साथ-साथ वयस्कों के लिए भी एक उत्तम इम्युनिटी बढ़ाने वाले खाद्य पदार्थ के रूप में काम करती है। यह एक समृद्ध एंटीऑक्सीडेंट है जो शरीर की कोशिका क्षति के खिलाफ समर्थन करता है। यह शरीर में बीमारियों या उम्र से संबंधित कमी को उलटने या देरी के लिए पाया गया है। प्रतिरक्षा पर वैज्ञानिक अध्ययन के बारे में यहाँ और पढ़ें।

अश्वगंधा और ब्राह्मी:
