My child can't stop coughing! Already gave cough med. Any suggestion?

Really good ideas would be to put some epsom salt in a glass of water...or any salt. Heat up in the microwave for a few seconds and have your child gargle it. Also gargling mouthwash helps a lot. Another thing that sometimes helps is tea. I hope your child feels better :)

Warm tea with a bit of honey.
Throat lozenges work too.
Be well

A cough can be anything from a post nasal drip which causes a tickle in the throat, to pneumonia. Only a doctor can tell you which it is. Don't fool around with home remedies. Take your child to a doctor!

filling the bath with hot water and tell her /him to stay in the bathroom and just breathe it in
a cough drop will never hurt
some sweet juice
orange juice or oranges helps cure coughing but it might hurt a little
a lollipop
an ice pop
HONEY
mouthwash if you gargle it
a nap
some hot chocolate

Make your child some tea with a little honey in no sugar and get them to rest.

Try giving honey & lemon in hot tea if you have any drainage going down the throat. The lemon will cut the flem, the honey will coat the throat.

Or depending on how old the person is: do not do if person is under 17 yrs: use dayquil and over 30 mins...take a sip hold it in mouth letting it drain down the throat.....do this through out the 30 mins

you need to put vicks vapor rub on his feet and then put socks on before bed i know it sounds weird but does help . Also take kid outside and have him take several deep breaths this will help open his bronchial tubes and slow down inflammation good luck
