A pharmacist shared with me the natural remedy for runny nose coz as a pharmacist she tried her very best to avoid giving drugs to her kids. She told me to use kunyit hidup (tumeric), yup not kunyit serbuk…kunyit hidup, get those very dark orange kunyit and stroke it at their forehead to the tip of their nose. Give it a couple of stroke, it will leave orange mark on the nose though.

And thats my problem now, my kids became conscious whenever i put the kunyit on them coz ppl will naturally asked them “eh knp oren kt hidung?” because of that they no longer allow me to put the kunyit on them 🙁
But seriously it works well for them. If kasi ubat it can prolong to over a week of runny nose but with kunyit hidup, insyaAllah after a day or two they fully recover from their runny nose. The best time is to put it first thing in the morning, and continue to put it later of the day again.
My two boys are down with runny nose, we have lotsa events to attend this weekend but they wont allow me to put the kunyit on them….aiyakkk. how now? But seriously it works better than giving them Zyrtec
