The herb book I use a lot has a remedy for it that might help. I've used this book for many things and trust it's advice. I haven't used this remedy so I can't say how effective it is.

1 part coltsfoot
1 part mullein
1 part licorice.

Make a tea with this, steeped for 15 minutes. It can be taken up to every 3 hours although three times a day would be best.

"Another highly effective remedy is white horehound, but because of its unpleasant taste it needs to be well masked by combining it with licorice or aniseed. This herb was the original constituent of old-fashioned cough candy - an infusion of white horehound plus sugar, lots of it."
If the cough is caused by phlegm then you might want to try boiling water with eucalyptus leaves. Once it has boiled for 15 minutes or so put the pot on a towel on the table. Have your child breathe in the steam by leaning over the pot and having a towel over his head (if he doesn't want the towel over him that's OK...it can be scary for a little one). This will help break up the mucus and help to open up the airway.

Honey Gardens Apitherapy Cherry Bark Syrup works well, the Echinacea elderberry might also be worth trying(elderberry is anti-viral).

Ionic colloidal Silver!! It is safe and it works..call me with questions if you have any! Any Health Food Store for starters and I can recommend where to get on line...go to http://www.silverfacts.com and you can read up your self- third party info. The BEST natural antibiotic, antifungal and antiviral you can ever find in nature! Nothing new- I have used it for over 15 years and I do not "do " sick!
My company has a high quality low potency of 5ppm and it is amazing, but take time to get on line. I have some here, but not unopened bottle to sell or try.
If interested: http://mariji.ShopVitamark.com

You will be glad you used ANY ionic Colloidal Silver cos it works!! Let me know if you do use it and the results...I only hear great results..
It takes a while to get into the blood stream and under tongue is best to get there fastest Every couple hours take and in a day or two-you will see great results without me making claims. Silver kills those critters in the blood and not the bodies good stuff.

I love ivy extract for coughs, if he can take a pill. they're small. Or, it may come in another form. Also, lung formula from www.Godsherbs.com, but, it's kind of yucky tasting. Maybe in small amounts in juice. I use the lung, heart and kidney formula from the amazing Dr. Morse, of Godsherbs.com. Godsherbs I can give clients10% off they're internet fees, so call me if you want to order.
