It is necessary

  • - milk;
  • - honey;
  • - baking soda;
  • - butter;
  • - inhaler;
  • - essential oils;
  • - mineral water;
  • - decoctions of herbs: linden, string, oak bark, etc.;
  • - honeycomb;
  • - Apple vinegar;
  • - lugol;
  • - a sterile syringe without a needle;
  • - cotton swab;
  • - antibiotic solution.


Step 1

Give your child plenty of warm drinks. Make a warm drink with milk, baking soda, honey, and butter. In a glass of liquid, take half a teaspoon of baking soda, one teaspoon of oil and two teaspoons of honey.

Step 2

Carry out inhalations with the addition of essential oils and herbal decoctions. Pour mineral water into the inhaler, drop a few drops of olive, sea buckthorn or other vegetable oil into it. Cover the child with a towel, carry out the procedure for 10-15 minutes. Teach your baby to deep breathing, show by example.

Step 3

If you have an "arsenal" of medicinal herbs at hand, inhale them. Without fear, you can use linden, oak bark, string, sage, nettle. They moisturize the laryngeal mucosa and help to strengthen the ligaments. It is better not to use complex medicinal preparations without consulting a doctor - they can harm the broncho-pulmonary system of the child.

Step 4

Give your child for dessert, instead of sweets and cakes, honeycombs with herb honey. Let him chew them two to three times a day, a teaspoon at a time. This procedure helps to quickly eliminate the hoarseness of the voice.

Step 5

Try to prevent the child from over-straining the vocal cords. Play with him in "who will keep silent more" or talk in a whisper, creating various game situations.

Step 6

Try to smear warm apple cider vinegar or lugol on the baby's neck. Dissolve 30 ml of apple cider vinegar in 100 ml of water, dip a sterile cotton swab in it and gently smear the baby's tonsils. You can try to inject this solution into the child's throat with a sterile syringe without a needle. Ask your baby to press his tongue to the bottom of his jaw and open his mouth wide. Do this in a playful way if the child is stubborn and capricious.

Step 7

Teach your child to gargle with herbal infusions or antibiotic solutions. Ask him to put some liquid in his mouth, throw his head back and say "ahh-ahh-ahh." For rinsing, you can use a tincture of eucalyptus, calendula, chamomile and other natural antiseptics, or antibiotics prescribed by your doctor.
