My 17 month old daughter has a bad cough and a runny nose - :(

Morning,
My daughter is 17 months old and has a runny nose and a really bad cough. i have been giving her Tixylix for it. is there anything else I should be doing to help her through this?

Also i have a 7 month old son who has asthma and has a very bad cough and a runny nose as well. The doctore have him on his pump and a liquid medication (not sure of the name) it is used for asthma as well. He is ok but gets in these bad coughing spells and it is like his eyes are gonna pop out. It makes him choke. How can I help him more with this??

Thanks Mother or 2 coughing babies :(

Dear Mysticc,
I'm not a doctor, but, there has been a lot of recent press about cold and cough meds not being effective at all for very young children.  The best you could do (in my lay opinion) is to keep an eye on the kids and if they get worse call the pediatrician.  Also, it may help to run a (cold ) humidifier.  It appears that hot-humid air helps keep viruses from spreading.

Regards,
Phil
