I have a two year old who keeps coughing, like he has a tickle in his throat. I had him at the drs. on Sunday and his lungs are clear, can I give him anything to relieve the coughing?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I can understand your situation.
Kindly give him a plain dextromethorphan syrup thrice daily for 5 days.
Give him nasal drops if his nose is blocked.
If the cough persists get a chest X-ray done and consult your specialist.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing your child a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
