Over the Counter Cough Medicines Not for Young Children

Milwaukee -

Doctors are warning parents not to grab their cough medicine to treat their sick child.

Dr. Kevin Dahlman, the medical director for children's health for Aurora Health Care, says it's because children don't react to medications the way adults do.

Dr. Dahlman recommends that, for children under 12, it's best not to give them over-the-counter cold medication.
