Why does my child have a cough?
There are lots of reasons why your child may have a cough, and they usually aren’t anything to worry about. One of the most common causes of a cough is a cold or the flu, and some of the other usual causes include acid reflux, bronchitis, hay fever, and other allergies. Usually, your child’s cough will pass by itself within a couple of weeks, but cough syrups can help them to feel more comfortable and reduce their cough in the meantime.
How will Bronchostop Junior relieve my kid’s cough?
Bronchostop Junior helps to relieve dry and chesty coughs in kids using marshmallow extract and honey, herbal remedies which are traditionally used as cough remedies. The cough syrup works like a balm, coating your throat and soothing the area, which may help to reduce coughing. This gives your child’s throat the room it needs to heal from irritation, which may ease their cough over time.

Bronchostop Junior is free from lactose and gluten and contains no alcohol. It’s also free from GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and contains no artificial colours. This means that Bronchostop kids is ideal for some specialist diets and is generally well-tolerated, which makes it an ideal herbal remedy for children.
