Toddler Cough

how to get rid of mucus in the throat of a toddler?
He’s 18 months old, he had a cold a few weeks ago. Most of the other symptoms are gone, but he has
mucus in his throat. It would make him have coughing fits till he vomits, he vomited 1-3 times a day for the past week. His diet is mostly milk and some table food. Is there anything that i can do about it?

Answer by Jibbie
Since he is only 18 months, I would call your doctor and ask. There are warnings on the sides of Cough Medicines for children that small, but apparently you need some medicine to help break up that mucus so he can get it out easier.

Milk makes more mucus in throat.It could be that he has allergies and one of them could be MILK.
And he could have ASTHMA.Please get him in ASAP.He might not have even had a cold ,it could of been a severe Asthma or Allergie Reaction.TAKE HIM TO AN ALLERGIE DOCTOR THEY WILL RUN TESTS.GOOD LUCK,TAKE CARE,BEST WISHES

1/2 teaspoon of honey for 2 and older. Works for my son. Be careful, though. Honey is somewhat of a natural laxitive. Your toddler will poop more. Not sure how often though. It works for several hours for my son, though.

Good Luck!

You may not believe this but a little touch of honey in warm water will do wonders. This is an old grannys remedy but in the recent years honey is known tohave several medicinal values. Give it a try you have nothing to lose.After all its not going to harm your little darling.

I have heard honey may help however children can develop a bad reaction to honey especially if they are allergic to bee stings. Try steaming up the bathroom and sitting in the room. The humidity of the steam may help

Ask your doctor for an inhaler. Some post-viral coughs can linger for a long time after the virus has gone.

A chronic cough in a child can also indicate asthma.
