Looking For A Natural Cough Medicine?

My son has coughed for a month. He's been to the doctor twice, on antibiotics twice. He has no other symptoms other than a cough so bad that he either throws up or has bronchial spasms and can't breath air in or out.


His doctor gave him codeine cough medicine which I hate to give him. It doesn't work at all and makes him groggy. His doctor said it just has to run its course.

Well, in the meantime, he's missing (a week so far) school. Anyone know of a strong natural cough medicine or anything to stop the spasms when he coughs?

Since I know it isn't bronchitis, pneumonia, or asthma, I just need a good natural cough medicine or homemade remedy. Thanks!

If you haven't already, Please take your son to a different doctor - for example a specialist in Pulmonary Medicine, an Allergist or a Cardiologist for further evaluation. A persistent cough (longer than a few days) is not a normal condition and indicates symptoms of a condition that can worsen if not addressed.


The best way to suppress a cough is to Cure or Treat the underlying cause.

Although a humidifier may be used if you live in a dry environment (sometimes used with external vapors or vapor rubs) - just make sure the reason for his cough is identified and treated.
It may take some time so Good luck, GodSpeed and May it turn out well!!
