Old fashion remedies: Many of the over the counter medications are not appropriate for young toddlers. Normal saline and humidified air help to relieve symptoms. You can sit in the bathroom and run a hot shower to loosen mucus and relieve the cough. Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen are helpful for the fever. Herbal honey based cough suppressants are good for your children > 1 year with little concerns of side effects.
