  1. Dr.I am using this oil for my baby. From the past 1 week she is having runny nose (no temperature). Can i continue giving her massage with this oil. I was unsure whether i could use it because it has chandan.
    Since December she was having fever or cold. Dr please tell me some home remedies to strengthen her immunity. I am really worried.

    • I assume that you have consulted a doctor for the prescription of this oil. The chandan in this oil is quite safe and would not aggravate rhinitis (running nose), on external application.
      I have written many home remedies and child care tips. Please take your time to read one after the other. Hope it helps.

      • Thank you very much Doctor
        I went through your article about ‘home remedies and child care tips’. It was very helpful.
        Doctor I went through C section, I’m 23 years old, height 5.4 and weight 77kgs. I do light exercises and I have started controlling my food but I still cannot reduce weight. Currently I’m breast feeding my baby. I heard about Divya Triphala Gulggal and Divya Medohar Vatti. Can I use it? I need to loose not all but atleast some weight because I am finding it very difficult to do my daily chores. Please help..
