Climate change in Pakistan plays an important role in the spread of cough, cold and allergy (hay fever). Increasing environmental dust along with frequent changes in temperature cause people to have sore throat. Additionally, the pollen allergy season also contributes to the high incidence of sore throat amongst Pakistanis. Viral infections are the most common cause of fever in children in Pakistan.1 These are usually associated with runny nose, cough and sneezing. People are increasingly becoming more health conscious and aware of side effects caused by regular medications, hence a tilt in the consumption of herbal medications especially for children has been observed over the years.
