Does Your Child Have Frequent Upper Respiratory Tract Infections?

In my last eight years of practice, many children with upper respiratory tract infections often came to me and homeopathy never disappointed them. URTI is a matter of concern for many parents.

Upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) is an acute infection of the upper respiratory tract involving the nose, sinus, pharynx, or larynx.

Some common upper respiratory infections are:

  • Cold (This includes allergic rhinitis, viral, bacterial infection, etc.)
  • Tonsillitis
  • pharyngitis
  • laryngitis
  • sinusitis
  • otitis media etc.

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

  • nasal blockage
  • nasal discharge
  • Burning and itching in the nose
  • postpartum discharge
  • sneeze etc
  • Throat irritation, pain, or redness
  • Cough
  • difficulty swallowing food
  • Hoarseness of voice or difficulty in speaking etc.
  • pain in ears
  • discharge from ears
  • hearing loss
  • ear blockage

Each of the symptoms above helps in making the diagnosis. Sometimes these symptoms may be associated with burning and discharge from the eyes, fever, malaise, body aches, headache or weakness.

This is a reactive reaction causing allergic problems, viral infections, and bacterial infections.

Protein deficient diet is due to many factors like low nutrition, lack of sleep, poor hygiene, surrounding environment, etc.

We have seen that children start getting infections again and again after going to school.


1. Immunity can be improved and infections can be prevented by simple measures.
2. Proper healthy nutrition and good eating habits.
3. physical activity(playing outside)
4. Enough Sleep
5. hygienic environment
6. mental well-being


In homeopathic treatment, it is important to understand all the factors to know the causes of infections. After understanding the personality of the child, homeopathic medicine can be given. Homeopathic treatment can be given even to one-day-old babies. It is very safe.
How homeopathy works for concurrent infections.

Homeopathy is used not only to treat acute infections but also to reduce the frequency and severity of infections. It improves the immunity of the child so that the child does not get infected again and again and his innate abilities develop.

I have seen children take antibiotics countless times every time, even if they have allergies, which further weakens the child’s immunity. One thing parents should keep in mind:

  • Even if you are using allopathic medicines, the test reports of every person are not the same.
  • Viral infections may, in some cases, be treated with symptomatic or antiviral medications.
  • Allergy symptoms should be treated with anti-allergy and symptomatic therapy.
  • If the infection is only bacterial then it should be treated with antibiotics, complete the course of antibiotics and do not leave it halfway, it makes the bacteria resistant.
