Summer colds can be the worst. You’re sweaty AND you can’t breathe?! But we’ve found 3 remedies that work really well to help relieve a sore throat in the summer, and we’re sharing those tips today!
3 At-Home Remedies for Relieving a Sore Throat in the Summer
With the kids coming home from summer camp, the germs are all around us, and sore throats are on the rise. But we’ve found 3 things that really work for our family.
1. Create a Steam Room
Steam up that bathroom and just let your kiddo breathe in the warm, wet air!
Steam is a great way to help relieve congestion, cough, and runny noses. The moisture in the air helps lubricate little nasal passages to relieve inflammation, making breathing just a bit easier.
It’s a similar idea to using a humidifier, which we always suggest for baby congestion!
2. Throat Soothing Lollipops
We have discovered the best little lollipops to help relieve symptoms of allergies and colds for kids!
Lolleez Organic Throat Soothing Pops are the BEST for relieving a sore throat or cough associated with seasonal allergies or from a cold or flu virus. They’re like cough drops for kids – just on a stick!
The most important part about these little lollis is that kids think they’re just a sweet treat! When our kiddos are sick, getting them to take anything to help relieve symptoms can be tough, but these fun lollipops are always a welcomed treat!
Lolleez uses organic ingredients, like fruit pectin and honey, to help soothe sore throats and relieve swelling and irritation.
3. Salt Rooms
Have you tried a salt room? Basically, it’s a room with no humidity where they release salt particles into the air that you then breathe in.
Healers in Europe have been using salt rooms to relieve symptoms of allergies, upper respiratory infections, and colds for hundreds of years. In Poland, they discovered that workers in the salt mines showed fewer respiratory issues, and so salt caves and salt rooms began to be used to treat respiratory symptoms.
There are lots of other claims to the benefits of salt rooms, but drying up the mucus in your little one’s nasal passages and airways is one benefit worth the try!
Final Thoughts on Natural Sore Throat and Cough Relief for Kids
Colds are not just for the winter months, and seasonal allergies can happen during any season of the year! Hopefully these quick tips will help you be prepared whenever your kiddos get the occasional sore throat or cough!
