Treating chesty coughs in children

It’s always tough listening to your child cough, but especially so when it becomes a chesty cough. When your child has a cold, a chesty cough can develop when their airways produce more mucus than normal. The cough is their body’s natural protective reflex to help clear their airways of all that extra mucus. So when you need a helping hand to soothe your little one’s chesty cough, try DURO-TUSS Children’s Cough Liquid 200mL.

What’s inside and how does it help your child?

  • Ivy leaf (Hedera helix): Ivy leaf helps to soothe coughs as well as clear the airways by thinning mucus.

Natural remedies for kids’ coughs

What about natural home remedies to help relieve your children’s cough and cold symptoms? Well, extra cuddles with mum or dad would have to be at the top of that list, but here are some other options you can also consider!

  • Offer your child water regularly to make sure they stay hydrated, and consider warm drinks or soups to help soothe and moisten their airways
  • Get your child to sit in a warm, steamy bathroom or set up a humidifier in their bedroom – extra moisture in the air can help loosen mucus and relieve congestion
  • For children over 12 months of age, try a teaspoon of honey to help relieve their cough – this is most effective before bedtime.

Remember, if you or your family have cold & flu symptoms, you should get tested and follow health advice.
