do you think its a good idea to put a garlic clove on the bottom of each foot of my 7 months old feet for a bad runny nose he has?

Sure, go for it. It's not going to harm him. Other things along the same line I heard were cut up an onion, douse it in olive oil, and have it sit on a plate in his bedroom. Once I tried all the home remedies at once on myself and I did feel better in the morning. Also smelly... I did the onion on a plate, the humidifier running, the Vicks AND garlic in my socks.



They have baby Vicks which is less strong, but I'm not sure if the regular strength would bother the baby if it's just on his feet. On the chest it's too strong.
