Kids Health: Dry Cough – Natural Home Remedies for Dry Cough

Fall is a common condition in children and usually is a symptom of some other underlying health condition. In dry cough, there is no phlem present and the child will complain of an itchy and dry throat. The affected child voice will sound horse and he or she may become irritable and easily exhausted. Such cough can cause difficulty in swallowing and also results in a loss of appetite. Coughing is a natural body relex which keeps the lungs, throat and the airway clear of foreign material. However, constant coughing is irritable and requires treatment. One of the most general causes of dry cough is common cold. Sometimes it is a result of other diseases such as laryngitis, pneumonia, sinus infection or auto viral infection of the respiratory tract. If your child is allergic to pollution, dust or smoke, then coming in contact with these allergens while playing outdoors can lead to dry cough. If the cough persists for a prolonged period it’s best to plan a trip to the doctor.
