Croup, Quick Cure for





Category: Unclassified Remedies

"A quantity of raw linseed oil should always be at
hand in a family where the children are subject to croup. It is an
unfailing remedy, and for quick results it beats anything else which can
be given for that dread disease. Half a teaspoonful is a dose, unless the
child is choking very badly; then give a teaspoonful. It acts two ways. In
the first stage of croup, where there is not much mucus, it is loosened
and carried off through the bowels. In the second stage it causes
vomiting, but, unlike ipecac, it leaves no soreness of the throat as an
after difficulty. It is rarely necessary to give more than one dose, when
the child will get relief and go to sleep again. This simple remedy is one
that is within the reach of every mother, and one that can be kept on hand
at all times; and, while it is in the house the dreaded croup need cause
no terrors."
