Family Practitioner Questions Cough Medicines

Can cough and cold always be treated with home remedies?

Cough syrups make my child very sleepy. I want to find another way to help my children soothe their coughs without relying on medicine. What do you recommend?

Yes, depends on medical condition
Every condition can be treated with natural medicine, but the remedy needed will vary from case to case and depends on what the cause of the cough is.

If they are older than a year old you can try small spoon of honey.
