pregnant cough

I am 18 weeks pregnant with a very dry cough.
Only from my throat. What can I take?

My little girl is 23 months and her cough sounds exactly the same - what can she take?

You will have to consult your doctor for an examination. If there is a bacterial infection present, you will need antibiotics to clear the infection. Unfortunately, there are no over the counter medication that has been tried and tested during pregnancy and I suggest that you suck menthol throat lozenges and consume tea and honey.

Your little girl can take Benylin Kidz.
