Keep your nose clean at all times
Coughing is also often linked to colds. To help the child breathe better and let the cold and cough pass sooner, the nose must be cleaned and freed very often. The cleaner the nose, the faster the symptoms will pass.

Humidify the room
Children's cough may intensify if the air inside the room is dry (for example, due to the presence of heating or air conditioning on). Humidifying the room is an excellent solution to overcome this problem.

Make your child drink plenty of fluids
The child should drink plenty of fluids (water, juices, milk ...) because this promotes hydration and the mucous membranes dry out less, reducing coughing and its discomfort.

Give more vegetables and fruits
Fruits and vegetables are two types of foods that should never be missing in children's nutrition. This is because fruits and vegetables contain important nutrients that help make the immune system stronger and also fight cough.
