Honey for soothing irritating coughs

Honey has long been used to sooth irritating coughs. Now objective evidence is giving more credibility to this traditional therapy. A new study shows that a single dose of honey 30 minutes before bedtime is at least as effective as the cough suppressant dextromethorphan for reducing cough frequency and severity in children over 2 years old. Don't recommend honey for children less than 1 year due to concerns about infantile botulism. But it might be worth a try for soothing cough in older children.
