Dr. Patrick Hieber answered:

What brand or kind of honey can I use to treat coughing, for my child?

Honey for cough

Honey
There is no special brand or type of honey that is specifically to be used for the treatment of cough. Any reputable brand can be used for children over the age of one year. Uncooked honey is not to be given to infants < 1 year of age due to a very small risk of infant botulism noted years ago in specific batches of commercially available honey.

My grandson is coughing every few seconds I gave him advil he has ate a little bit what should I do for the cough I have also givin him honey?

Cough

Honey
You have not said how old your grandson is. As the treatment is dependent on his age, If he is under a year of age, honey is not recommended. if cough last for more than a few days then schedule doctor appointment, if he is over a year of age honey is safe. Other cough medication that is over the counter is also NOT recommended if the child is less than 4years

Dr. Shah Chowdhury answered:

Can I give our 3 1/2 year old little remedies cold medicine with cough suppressant in it. Tried honey and natural stuff. Nothing is helping?

NEED SOME PATIENCE:

Recent_cough
If honey and natural stuffs not helping, then check with his pediatrician. Some cough is good because it is a natural defense mechanism to clear the upper airway, sinuses and lower respiratory tract. If cough is prolonged, interferes eating, sleeping, then further evaluation needed to rule out Asthma, Allergy, Sinus issue. OTC cough meds has a lot of side effects, not good for kids.

My 2.5 year old daughter often has a lingering cough 2 weeks after a cold. Can I give her cough medication if yes which one? We just give her honey

No cough medicine

Cough
It's not uncommon to have a lingering cough for a long time after a cold, as long as she feels well and eats and has normal activities. If she takes a turn for the worse, then she should see the doctor. Pediatricians don't recommend cough medicine in children less than 4 any longer. Lemon, honey tea is OK, Vaporub on the chest is OK, using a humidifier in her bedroom when she sleeps may help.
