We are all familiar that there are many types of coughs that are usually signs of illness in kids, but not necessarily a serious one, of course. A dry cough for example, might indicate an infection of respiratory system or asthma, and usually gets more intense during sleeping time. Wet cough includes mucus that indicates fluid aggregation in the respiratory system. This kind of a cough is the usual indicator of a cold, but might also represent the beginning of some more serious illness such as asthma or some infections. But in other cases, coughs do not indicate anything serious, if a child is playful, eats and sleeps normally, not even a natural remedy is needed. That is how the child will strengthen their immune system on their own.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three items from their list. The first remedy is massage. A gentle massage on your kid’s chest, face, neck and back might help release pain and loosen mucus from chest and lungs and help the child cough it out easier. This mild massage helps the child a lot since infants do not cough deep enough to throw out all the accumulated mucus. Be sure that the room where you massage your child is warm. Thes seocnd one steam baths. Hot steam is good for opening inflamed bronchi and airways and it will ease the breathing, especially with drier barking coughs. This can be done during bath time, when it is important to stay in steamed bath for around 20 minutes. The last remedy we are mentioning now is drinking lots of fluids. This is a recommendation for any kind of coughs. Good hydration is important for your child’s health and everyday life. Some recommendations for coughs for kids and babies are hot clear fluids, like water, apple juice or decaffeinated herbal tea.
