My dd1 2 years old has had a nasty chesty cough for a couple of weeks which I was hoping would go away on it's own. Is there anything I can give her to help get rid of it? Any remedies i can try? All the cough medicine seems to be for tickly coughs. Thanks

As it's been going on I would take her to the doctor. DS had this when he was a bit younger and was prescribed an inhaler to help shift it. It could be that she has a chest infection, in which case she will need antibiotics.
