  • i would only use childrens benedryl..the recommended dose. call your doc and ask ahead of time if you plan on taking her. if her cough is that bad they may just want to give her a steroid and she may even have an infection

  • Put Vick's Vaporub on the bottoms of her feet and put cotton socks on her. It warms the body through the feet asnd soothes the cough.
