Honey Elixir
My favorite is the Little Remedies version

ETA: There are a few hemopathic cough and cold meds out there too. I am careful to read the ingridents (ALL not just active) and be sure nothing else i'm giving her contains the same. That's why I like the Little Remedies Honey Elixir, not much too it. so I can give her other stuff. Or even just plain honey with other stuff is good.

Honey soothes and coats the throat. Benedryl to dry her up and vicks baby rub (not really vicks when you read it) on the chest, neck, feet. clear fluids and warm baths with cool air humidifier at nights. warm bath to loosen up stuff, and cool air to keep it as clear as possible.
