My son is 2yrs 3mnths and has had a constant cough for a month, particularly at night. I have been using a nose spray but thought I could use a nebulizer as well.

Would this help clear the mucous and if so, what do I use in the Nebulizer?

Thank you for your input.

A nebuliser may help. You would need to use Duolin in the nebuliser. Speak to your pharmacist.

My 2 year old daughter has had flu symptoms since about 8 months old. she' s been on many antibiotics to clear her chest. No sign of asthma or allergies. She' s constantly sick and is well for about a week out of 2 months. I use Iliadian nasal spray (5 days) Karvol vapour rub or Vicks. Should I try a nebulizer. Coughing is very bad at night. She has loads of energy during the day and seems fine, except the constant runny nose/blocked nose &  chesty cough. Please advise.
