Hello ILites, I am starting a new thread for cold and coughs in kids specifically in this forum as my family has been hit hard for the past few months actually. No medicines for my younger one as they suggest that cold/cough medicnes just don't work. I am looking for any remedies other ILites can suggest that has worked for them. I am sure there are a lot of ILites in this situation. Home remedies in other forums, esp. Chitvish are very good, but I do not access to some of the ingredients and some just dont know what they are. Right now, he has a lot of thick phlegm, he keeps coughing but unsuccessful in bringing it up. He gargles with plain warm water, but no salt. Please share remedies that have worked for you.
