My wife came home from school with exactly the same cough - 30 kids are bound to do it. Honey and lemon (fresh not the Lemsip type) will work a treat. Use Lemonade if you have no lemon.

You're not actually coughing up blood?

Olbas Pastiles, the only thing that works for me manuka honey is good too

Thorntons mint toffee will help :thumbsup:

honey works for me

Could try this. Don't know if it works as heard about it after my cough cleared. Might be worth trying though

thick glass of honey dun use hot water...
honey is know to be anti-inflammatory agent
worst come to worst guggle with salt water

there is no actual cure for a cough, only remedies that will sooth it. Honey and lemon is the best by far. The stuff you get over the counter does nothing to cure it, and you end up spending stupid amounts of money on stuff like Lemsip and Beechams. If it gets really bad, go see your doctor because it could develop into a secondary infection and you would need a course of antibiotics to treat this. good luck though :thumbsup:

Pholocodeine cough supressent...

i took my 2.5 year old daughter to the drs after she had her cough on and off for nearly 2 weeks .. he wasnt at all worried and told me to bring her back if she started coughing up geen stuff ! charmin

Good luck with the cough - I've had it for 4 weeks now :x

I would recommend honey and lemon too - the docs have told me in the past that over the counter medicines don't work and you are far better with the honey and lemon
