Answer: This remedy is known as unakka manjal chuttathu in Kerala. Place dried turmeric stick on the flame till its gets a slightly charred texture. Rub on a stone to get the turmeric paste. Apply the paste on the bridge of baby’s nose to get relief. Mix turmeric powder with a little water to form paste. Take it in a ladle and heat it. Switch off once warm. Apply the luke warm turmeric paste on chest, forehead and feet. The heat from the turmeric can absorb the phlegm, thereby relieving the baby from cold and cough. Warm mustard oil with a few kalonji seeds (nigella sativa) and 2 garlic cloves. Apply on baby’s chest, under the nose, back of feet and palms. Massage gently. You can wipe off the excess oil post massage.
