dear dr kadwa

His nasal problems have improved.
There is no blockage/sneezing.
But the cough is there. I have observed that he has it only while eating or thereafter,
mostly dry

There are five remedies that can work for your child.
1. Puls
This will work when he has mild disposition and he prefers open air. It should work when his nasal discharge is yellow or green.

2. Phos
This will work if he prefers open air and has a barking cough.

3. Ars Alb
When his nasal discharge is thin and if he prefers warmth Ars should work.

4. Cina
When he suffers on account of worms Cina should work.

5. Allium Cepa
When his nasal discharge is thin and acrid and if he prefers open air Allium Cepa should work.

So you should give him the indicated remedy in the same way as you have given earlier.

It will be best if everyone including parents and the child do the breathing exercises regularly. The child may do it for 10-15 minutes daily.

Please read my posts on the breathing exercises called as Anulom Vilom Pranayam and Kapalbhati Pranayam by following the links given below. Please practise these pranayams regularly for half an hour preferably in a garden early in the morning. You may practise at any other convinient time. The only restriction that you have to follow is not to do these exercises within 4 hours after meals. You can have meals not within 15 minutes after finishing these exercises.

The following ayurvedic medicines may also help -
Vidangasava - for worms.
Sitopaladi Choorna - for cough
Laxmi Vilas Ras - for cold
