Child diseases and conditions



Hiccups and Hoarseness


A baby hiccups very frequently, and there is nothing to worry about that. Hiccups are usually due to rapid eating or some digestive irritation. They settle down themselves, but sometimes a drink of water or diverting the child’s attention will help. Burping the child may also stop hiccups.

Hoarseness of voice is due to infection of the throat and windpipe. It may also be due to excessive crying or shouting. Sipping hot drinks (hot water with a little honey is excellent) or gargling with hot water helps. Steam inhalation is also beneficial. The idea is to basically keep the throat moist, and give a little warmth.
