Cough Cough

My 9 year old had a horrible cough. Thursday and Friday he had a sore throat but that has cleared up now its just this nasty cough. He can not get rid of it. I have tried Mucinex for children that is for cough and generic Mucinex for cough in children. It will not get any better. Any suggestions on what I could do to help him get rid of this cough?

Lemon ginger tea will help, if he's hacking so hard he can't sleep.

If he is going to school, take him into the doctors ... maybe he/she will have something a little stronger to help while at school.

Other wise just ride it out....

Put a humidifier in his room and put Vicks on his chest and palms and feet at night. I tend to let coughs run their course, with the aide of cough drops, so I may not be much help. If he is struggling breathing and/or weezing/raspy breathing you might want to consider seeing a dr. Ds had pneumonia last year so I definitely like to listen for that with a bad cough, but he is also much younger.

Coughs tend to linger. Our Ped says hot tea and honey and a humidifier.
