My 2 1/2 year old is coughing and his voice is scratchy and he said his chests hurt. The pharamist said I have to take him to the dr bc he's under 4. Should I take him or wait it out? Or do you have any natural remedies?

  • I would elevate the head end of his bed and add vapor rub stuff to the humidifier.

  • If his chest hurts he may have bronchitis. I'd get him checked. I hope he feels better soon.

  • Try homey in warm tea...but you should take him in to make sure that it is just a cold and nothing more. Hope he feels better =)
