Lots of fluids!: Extra fluids may help. Make your own cough medicine by using 1 part tea, 1part honey, and l part lemon juice. An "expectorant" is an over-the-counter medication which may help to liquify mucous secretions and make them easier to cough up. Don't give honey to babies under one year old.
