How it works

Many children experience coughing and respiratory congestion from bronchial mucus from time to time.

A child coughs when their body is trying to clear unwanted matter like mucus (also known as phlegm or sputum) from their airways. This type of cough is sometimes described as being ‘wet’ or ‘productive’, and can result in mucus being coughed up.

In some instances, coughing may also be a response to irritation of the mucous membranes in the respiratory tract. These types of coughs usually don’t involve the clearing of mucus, so are often called ‘dry’ or ‘unproductive’ coughs. They may be associated with bursts of coughing that occur in spasms.

Ivy leaf relieves kids’ coughs

Ivy leaf soothes children’s coughs and is used as an expectorant to clear mucus from the respiratory tract.

Elecampane and thyme: traditional expectorant herbs in Western herbal medicine

Elecampane and thyme are traditionally used in Western herbal medicine for their expectorant properties and to relieve coughs in children. Elecampane is also traditionally taken to relieve bronchial mucous congestion in Western herbal medicine.

Balloonflower: traditionally taken to relieve cough in Chinese medicine

Balloonflower is traditionally used to reduce cough and sore throat symptoms in children in Chinese medicine.

Chinese licorice

Chinese licorice is included in Oriental Botanicals’ Kids’ Cough Fighter because it’s traditionally used to reduce children’s coughs and soothe irritated tissues in Chinese medicine.

This herb has a naturally sweet taste, which teams with the blackcurrant flavour in Kids’ Cough Fighter to create a great-tasting cough mix that’s easy to administer to your child when mixed with water or juice.

When should your child see a health professional for their cough?

Most children’s coughs are mild and transient. However, if your child is experiencing a severe or persistent cough, investigation and treatment by a health professional is warranted.

See your doctor or health professional if your child has a cough that is:

  • Associated with breathing difficulties, a high fever, changes to the colour of their skin, or a barking or ‘whooping’ noise
  • Present for more than two weeks - especially when accompanied by other symptoms including shortness of breath and wheezing
  • Interfering with their ability to sleep or engage in their daily activities
  • Triggered by exposure to house dust, pets or pollen, or by the consumption of certain food or drinks [1,2,3,4]
