One of the best things that you can do to help your child stop coughing is to increase the amount of water that they are drinking. This can help get rid of viruses and bacteria that are in your child’s body and will help keep their throat moist. If they are old enough, you can also give them hard candy or cough lozenges to suck on.

Herbal tea is also a fantastic item that will help your child stop coughing. You can also mix a little bit of honey and lemon with hot water to help suppress a cough. When you drink warm liquids, mucus will be loosened, which will make it easier to cough up. Honey will help to coat the throat so that coughing is not as likely.

Finally, have your child gargle a bit of salt water to help relieve their cough. The salt is something that will help disinfect the mouth and will also help make it easier to breathe because of its ability to clear the nasal passageways.
