Q.

Cough mixture

Hi Professor,

My two sons, aged 2 &  4, have Upper Airway Infections and the Sister at the Clinic said that ACC is good enough to give them to get rid of the phlegm. Is this correct or is there a cough mixture that I can use?

Thank you.

Cough mixtures are not usually recommended for children.I prefer Mucospect or Flemex to ACC for children.
