Can anyone give me any quick opinions about what to do for a dry tickly cough in a five year old? It seems that all the actual medicinal "cough mixtures" are recommended for over six only, anyone got any ideas about what might work? He's not very sick, just coughing lots.

Cant beat a good dollop of honey in warm water, or even just a neat spoonful.

I will try that, thanks.

Already seems better! Thanks for the tip!

You're welcome. Its always nice to find a solution that doesnt involve money or actual medication.
