How to treat a cough:
New guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and Public Health England (PHE) on using honey to treat a cough have been developed after looking at the best available scientific evidence. The evidence showed that honey could be effective at reducing the symptoms of acute coughs due to upper respiratory tract infections (infections of the airways), including how often people coughed and how bad their cough was. The guidance applies to adults and children over 5 years of age. It’s important to note that honey is not safe for children under the age of 1.
