My daughter has a dry hacking cough at night and she won't stop coughing!!! HELP!
She wont drink honey and tea. She spits out honey and milk. I turned the heater in her room off. I've given her baby Tylenol. I've given her an extra pillow! She can't fall asleep, and if and when she does she just wakes herself up several times a night. This isn't her first run in with night time dry hacking coughing. We always just grit out teeth and bear through the constant vomiting from coughing so hard, but I can't stand it anymore. She'll be sick for a week, ok for a couple, then sick for another week. the doctors say she's got a cold, but there's nothing I can do. PLEASE HELP! Does anyone have any home remedies for dry hacking cough? Tomorrow I'm getting a humidifier!
