NEVER give your child any mixture containing cleaning fluids of any kind. Enemas or putting something up your child’s bottom should never be done unless it is medication prescribed by a doctor or clinic. Enemas can cause serious internal infections or damage internal organs such as the liver and can easily kill your baby or young child. The younger the baby the more dangerous it is.

Home remedies to avoid are:

  1. Burning herbal smoke for the child to breathe can harm baby’s lungs. 
  2. Don’t give Vicks drops by mouth or any other medication for adults, or any mixture containing vinegar.
  3. Camphor oil can cause convulsions or fits 
  4. Drinking the water from boiled Senecio flowers can cause liver cancer.
