Q: What’s the best solution for a congested cough?
A: Lots of fluids and steam are great for coughs, as is reducing the consumption of dairy products and fried foods. I also use homeopathy with my kids and BOIRON USA has a handy medicine finder that helps you locate a remedy that fits your (or your child’s) specific condition. If your child is over the age of 1, honey can also be a great cough soother and a few drops of essential oils, such as eucalyptus, may be helpful when mixed with a carrier oil (such as olive oil) and rubbed onto the chest.
