My son is 3. He has been sick with a cold since Friday. He had a runny nose, cough, congestion and a fever. I gave him Motrin before he went to bed Friday and the fever hasn't been back. He has so much phlegm buildup that he's trying to cough up but he can't because he's scared of throwing up. He's now coughing so much that he is hoarse, it also keeps him up at night He's been eating and drinking fine the last few days. I've been giving him ginger ale in his sippy cup and that seems to help his throat. But is there anything I can give him to break up the phlegm to stop the cough? I just want my little boy back, I hate when he's sick!
Oh, we rub him down every night with vicks and also run a vaporizer in his room all night!
