Me and my kiddos are coughing hard from our allergies... I got into a BAD coughing fit yesterday and nearly puked :( I'm needing a natural way to soothe it since my youngest is 19 months and my oldest is 4... My oldest also has a yeast infection (not circ'd) so I'm afraid of stuff interacting with the nystantin. Anyone have any good ideas

There's two great cough syrups that we like- they're more for coughs from illness but they might be soothing and help with the allergy symptoms. One is called Olba's and the other which is a little more mild for kids is Chestal. You can usually find one or both at a health food store.

I don't know if it would work (allergies instead of cold), but we use Vicks under our toes (and even on their chests) for coughing. Of course because it has menthol in it please be careful of little ones getting it in their eyes. Socks are the easy answer.

ginger tea and nettle tea help so do echinacia and they dont react with nystatin.
