In Reply to: Children Coughing, Please help!!! posted by Stacy on February 25, 2000 at 20:33:14:
: My four children, ages 1-8 get this cough twice a year. They cough till they gag or even throw up. This is almost constant. They barely even get a brake. They cry and say their throats and chests hurt. The doctors don't do anything, they just say give them cough medicine. I think I have tried everything. Nothing works!! This has been going on for over a week now. It seems like they might be passing it back and forth, over and over. Does anyone know what this is or what to do?
My oldest suffered from a cough for almost a year that the doctors called a reactive airway. She would cough so hard she would throw up. They gave me puffers for her to use but they didn't work. Finally, I took her to see a Naturopathic doctor who told me to give her cod liver oil. In no time her cough was gone and has not returned. That was about 4 years ago. Now every winter during cold session I give her a little cod liver oil as a preventative. You can get it in different flavors now. The mint isn't that bad. I hope this has helped you out. Good Luck.
