Doctors said its nothing but a cough. He has asthma so I have been giving him albutoral every 4 hours but its not helping. He is tired of coughing and its starting to drive us both crazy. Any home remedies that can help a cough?

Does he see an asthma/allergy doctor? The albuterol treatments should give him some relief.

A teaspoon of raw honey works for my kids usually. I'm assuming he's over one.

Cool mist vaporizer, Vicks on chest and on feet under socks, hot tea with honey. Any way they would be willing to do epinephrine nebulizer if it persists?

My son was like that.  I hated it.  Id have the humidifier on full blast.  Honey?  Tea?  Tylenol?  Take a hot shower?  Prop him up?  Heating pad on his chest?
