Take care of your child’s cough this winter Parents are urged to take care of their children’s coughs this winter. Tooth-conscious toddlers ‘live mouth smart’ to win oral health contest Winter is here and along with it the sound of coughs. Coughing is common in children, especially when they are preschool age, and is usually shortlived. However some coughs can be a sign of an infection. One cough to be aware of is a ‘wet cough’. A wet cough sounds ‘chesty’ and is phlegmy. A wet cough is not normal and may need to be checked out by a doctor. Any cough that lasts more than three weeks is also not normal and needs to be checked out by a doctor. If in doubt about your child’s cough, always phone Healthline on 0800 611 116 or get it checked out by a doctor. GP visits and most prescription charges are free for under 13 year olds.
