9. Carom seeds
Carom seeds, also known as ajwain in Hindi, help relieve chest congestion.
Method: Take a teaspoon of ajwain seeds and add it to a pan of water. Bring the water to boil. Take a small towel and place it above the boiling water to warm it up (do not dip the towel in the water). Now, place the warm towel on your child’s chest. This will help ease the cough. While you do this, your room should be insulated.
