Okay so a few weeks back Bailee was very congested and coughing and wheezing really bad. So I got to the ER and they said she had a THROAT infection.. and gave her some antibiotics. But I was told the throat infection had nothing to do with the coughing and wheezing.
So fast foward to the past few days. She has been couging, very congested but she also has a fountain of snot running down her nose 24/7, her eyes keep getting caked in eye boogers, she feels warm(not sure if she has a fever) and like today when she woke up she was coughing so hard she starts puking.
Half the time she doesn't want eat food, and the other half when she does try to eat her food she chokeson it.. Im guessing because she can't breathe through her nose? She never choked on her food till she was sick. The only thing she can eat is bannanas. So she just woke up from a nap so she is watching Disney Junior and eating bannanas and coughing eveyr 30 seconds.
I feel so bad for her but I don't know what to do. My grandma says if I take her to the ER they are probably just gonnna tell me that its a cold and there is nothing they can do. (Which... they probably will
We don't have a car anyways so I'd probably have to call FILs wife to come get us.. (and she lives about 30 minutes away). Because my mom and my aunt have to work in the morning and don't have the gas to take us. *sigh*
Calling her pedi isn't an option because she doesn't have one right now(long story, don't ask)
I'm just lost, and I don't know how to make her feel better.
Warm bathes help, or steaming up the bathroom and sitting in there with her. And your right if its a cold they will do nothing, and you can't give them anything or a cold until they are over 2.... It sucks when Los are sick my dd just got antibiotics today for a sore throat...
If the coconut oil is not liquid, you will have to warm it until melted. I warm it under hot water, not on the stove. Then you will add three tablespoons of olive oil and mix them together. Next, add three tablespoons of fresh chopped garlic. I chop up my garlic in the blender a bit with a bit of the oil, then add the rest of the oil and blend at high speed for two minutes. Another suggestion is to use a coffee grinder. Pour mixture through a screen to remove chunks of garlic that the blender may have missed. Pour into a wide mouth jar and label it “GOOT.” Place in a refrigerator.
Freshly made, the mixture is a milky color and runny. GOOT turns into a thick soft paste after one hour. After being in the fridge for several hours, it is just hard like a salve easy to spread.
Don’t worry if your GOOT melts. The oils will not stay hard when warmed. It’s fine. You can use it as the oil or you can put it back in the fridge and cool it again.
MEDICINAL PROPERTIES GOOT, rubbed into the skin, transfers raw garlic oil directly into the blood stream. Raw garlic is a natural antibiotic that does not carry the bad flora that a Rx antibiotic will put into your intestines.
Apply on the feet of children or infants to fight infections. Rub on chest for chest colds, pneumonia or rub into nostrils for sinus infections. Place on cotton swab for ear infections. Apply directly to sores inside the mouth. Rub on Athlete’s foot or genital area for jock itch. Insert GOOT into affected area for yeast or other related infections. Apply on rashes any place. GOOT kills Candida, parasites, bad bacteria and virus by direct application.
In addition, it treats systemic infections by absorption through the skin into the blood supply and travels throughout the body. After two weeks, make a new batch of GOOT.
