    Hi, for coughing, it is advisable not to give fruits and fish. That's what my Chinese doc adviced when my son is coughing. It is best to just let him eat veg and pork. No fruits, fish, chicken, egg, soya bean.

    Try to go Ma Kuang Healthcare Group to see a Chinese doc. My 2 kids react well to the medicine.

    However, sometimes Chinese medicine takes effect slower than cough syrups but it really gets to the root of the problem. Another factor to consider is that your child must be able to drink the bitter medicine. You have to mix in warm water and drink it. Sometimes I mix the medicine into their milk bottle and let them drink their milk together with the medicine.

    Cough syrups have some side effects which I don't like. My kids will have cold sweat and their face look pale when they are on cough syrups. Makes them feel drowsy and listless too.

    Hope this helps. Speedy recovery for your child.

    shld let the kids try pure (warm) ginseng soup (taste very nice) to boost up the body energy.
    less fruit, vege and vitamins. no aircon or prevent not too cold.
    always keep his body warm, especially when the whether cold.

    it's not recommended to let your kids rely on medicine in the young age as medicine is not good!
    i believe Regular (2 times/day) massage on 头部原始点 & 背部原始点 (pls google it) will help his prob.
    + an increasing of body energy level will help his problem, u shld try boil hot Ginseng soup for Few days for him to drink, then monitor his progress.

    p/s:No need to buy expensive Ginseng as it's not necessary better.
    p/s: consume less sweet/sour/oily/iced food & control aircon temperature (to comfortable temperature 25 degree,, not too cold for kids)
