My 2 year old has a lower respiratory infection. We have tylenol and advil for her, saline for a nasal drip, and vicks. Is there anything else I can do to help ease her pain and coughing??

Filling the bathroom up with steam...sitting in there with her.

1/2 tsp of honey if she isnt allergic to bees/honey.  That will help soothe throat as well as fight infection.  Popsicles also help sore throats.

Ooo, those things you put in the shower. The vapor tablets. I swear by those.

We havent tried the suckers yet.  Are they any good?  I just prefer the local honey we can buy at store and i do a full teaspoon for myself.
