I"m not sure what my kids have got, and I read the 'croup' thread, but i don't really know what croup is, so sorry if this is just a repeat. I have a three year old, two year old and 4 month old and they all have a cough, a little runny nose and lots of plegm. I tried the garlic poultice last night on their chest, back and feet, but I'm not sure how often to do it and for how long. I also have been giving them some Tummy Tune Up and EmergenC (older kids, haven't given baby vitamin C)
ANyways, they're sleeping and eating ok, but kinda irritable and I feel bad for their coughing, even though it's not a bad, barking cough. Dr. said it was a post nasal drip causing them to cough, but they hadn't had any congestion or runny nose before the cough. (wasted that $25)
Anyways, if anyone knows what it is and how to get rid of it quick please let me know, three cranky littles ain't fun!
