Cough cures ?

Three weeks into coughs with my DCs. Not bad during the day but waking at night or early morning. I know they don't give cough remedies for under 6, but is there anything else that might work? Their coughs are quite dry.

Steam? DS has croup at the moment and that was one thing the doctor advised. If they're over a year then warm water with honey might also help.

If it's a post-viral wheeze type cough, then a salbutamol inhaler is the only thing that helps mine when they get this.

Agree with three. Post viral nocturnal cough usually respond well to an inhaler. Trip to the gp may be in order.
