Discover safe & natural Ayurvedic remedies for allergic rhinitis in children. Learn about herbs, dietary guidance, lifestyle modifications & more.

Allergic Rhinitis in children is a very tiring condition that can create a lot of disturbance in their lives. But Ayurveda offers holistic treatment for allergic rhinitis in children. Make your children’s lives free from allergic rhinitis.

Allergic Rhinitis is an allergic condition where children experience continuous sneezing, runny nose, itchy and watery eyes when they are exposed to any allergen. Usually, we are not allergic to dust or smoke or pollen or any other allergen per se but when our immune system starts considering them as a trigger and starts producing inflammatory mediators to fight against them, it becomes a problem.

The exact cause of the trigger is unknown but the mechanism behind this is the imbalanced or weakened immune system which wrongly considers normal things as allergens and produces inflammatory mediators which creates a pool of inflammation in the body. It is difficult for the child as Allergic Rhinitis in Children can interfere with their daily activities and they can feel isolated from other children.

Natural Remedies to Treat Allergic Rhinitis in Children 

These natural remedies you can use to treat allergic rhinitis in children naturally.

1. Turmeric Milk 

Turmeric milk has been proven to reduce allergic rhinitis symptoms. Give a glass of turmeric milk to your child at night, to mask the taste you can add honey. This will give relief from nasal congestion and throat inflammation. 

2. Gargling 

Gargling with lukewarm water can clear up the mucus formed in the chest and nasal passages and deal with the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. 

3. Cover Up

Protect your child from allergens. If they are allergic to dust, keep them away from dust or if they are allergic to cold, protect them with winter wear to prevent allergic rhinitis. 

4. Steaming 

It can be the best home remedy and is one of the strategies of treatment for allergic rhinitis in children if your child cooperates. Boil the water and add a few drops of eucalyptus oil, turmeric, or tulsi, and allow your child to inhale the steam. It clears up the blocked nasal passages, expels out the mucus, and prevents allergic rhinitis. 

Dietary Guidance

Along with the above-mentioned natural remedies, giving your child a diet rich in nutrients and kapha pacifying is necessary. 

  • Avoid sugary sweets.
  • Avoid packaged foods that can worsen your child’s immunity.
  • Avoid heavy meals and processed foods.
  • Give them warm, easily digestible, and light meals.
  • Include herbs and spices like pepper, bell peppers, turmeric, and cinnamon which can increase pitta dosha. 
  • Avoid processed meats that can reduce the agni, and digestive fire in your children. 

This dietary guidance plays a key role and is a part of the treatment for allergic rhinitis in children.
