Due to the frequent weather changes, unseasonal rains, pollutions etc. throat infections, cough and cold have become one of the most common health problems in Urban India. Children are at more risk of suffering from cough and cold as they are exposed to outdoor activities several times a day. Though cough and cold is generally not regarded as a serious health hazard, but it may lead to multiple other health problems if it is not treated at the onset. Once children have cough and cold they may be prone to other health issues. As a result they might miss the best period of their schools and learnings.
