ENT Specialist 's  Response

First of all the cause of the cough has to be found out rather than suppressing the cough. The child might be having recurrent nasal block/discharge/enlarged tonsils/lower respiratory tract infections which are responsible for cough. Get your child examined by a good Child Specialist and an ENT Specialist.
