Cough is a common pediatric complaint. Acute cough is often considered to be self-limiting and not requiring particular management. However, pediatric patients and their parents often seek remedy for acute cough. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Specialists have been treating pediatric cough for millenniums.
