While coughing is not typically considered an illness itself, it can cause some issue with the respiratory system in toddlers, especially if phlegm is present as well. Typically, this type of cough develops when the immune system is working hard to keep your toddler healthy or when there are infections or bacteria in the lungs.

Nasal decongestants are some of the best options to choose when your toddler has phlegm cough. This can help if their nasal passages are blocked and works if they have a common cold, sinus infection or the flu.
Steam is also something that can be used to help clear up a phlegm cough. You can do this by allowing your toddler to breathe in the steam from hot water. For even better results add a bit of eucalyptus or peppermint oil to the water before heating it up.
You should also make sure that your toddler is eating healthy foods and drinking plenty of water throughout the day as well. This will help to make sure that they are remaining healthy enough to fight off the infection that is causing their phlegm cough. Water will also help to make sure that phlegm stays thin and that they are able to cough it up easily.
