Cough, Cold, and Allergy Tips

If you have questions or concerns about your child’s health, ask your child’s doctor.

  • Drink Up to Stay Hydrated

    Give your child plenty of liquids to keep them hydrated and help thin out their mucus. Water, juice, and electrolyte drinks or warm soup are good choices.

  • Ease Congestion With a Humidifier

    Place a cool-mist humidifier in your child's room. A humidifier puts water into the air to help clear your child's stuffy nose so it is easier for your child to breathe. Be sure to clean the humidifier often!

  • Heads Up

    Raise your child’s head with an extra pillow to help ease a cough caused by post-nasal drip and relieve nasal congestion.

  • Rest, Rest, Rest

    Plan relaxing indoor activities like reading stories, watching movies, or looking through photo albums.
