Honey and lozenges for children with non-specific cough

According to the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2011, a review aimed to assess the efficacy of treating children with such coughs using honey or lozenges found that the efficacy of these treatments in treating acute cough in children has the potential to be beneficial in children over a year old. Further research evaluating the efficacy of honey and lozenges in treating chronic non-specific coughs in children is needed.
