Please don't: the best boost to your child's immune system is good nutrition and scheduled immunizations. Does the child go to daycare? Does anyone in the household smoke? Those two things increase the incidence of coughs and colds. Do a search on Health Tap and see how many questions we answer about tea tree oil causing blistering, inflammation and irritation.
