Patient Comments: Children's Cough Causes and Treatments - Chronic Cough

Please describe your child's experience with a chronic cough.

Comment from: edith, 3-6 Male (Caregiver) Published: October 18

My 3 year old got a cough that persisted for months. We treated with cough syrups, then antibiotics and finally intravenous injections and that's when it cleared. But it was a very traumatic experience. As a preventive measure, I ensure he takes mixed fruit juice every day especially oranges and tangerine, keep him very clean and keep him warm at night.
