Cough due to upper respiratory tract infection (URI) or cough without preceding infection is extremely common among children. Most prescribed and over-the-counter preparations for cough in children are ineffective. A single dose of raw honey before bedtime was shown in recent studies to diminish cough and the discomfort experienced by children.
There is increasing evidence that a single dose of raw honey might reduce mucus secretion and reduce cough in children. Accumulating evidence suggests that honey might have a role in treating cough and cold in children, a recommendation made by the World Health Organization as early as 2001.
Raw honey can be recommended as a natural remedy with a single dose of 2.5 ml before bedtime for children older that 1 year of age.
