    Parent with kid with asthma
    Rosy1126 posted:
    Hi my son who is now 6 yrs old was born with weezing asthma that became an annoying cough. It mainly trigger when the temperature drop and when it gets really bad he vomits a lot. We tend to control it pretty well, but it gets tiring with the med, so we only dose him when needed. I hear there might be home medicine that might cure it for good. We tried the honey, lime and onion for a while, he liked it and it seem to make him feel better. I am not sure how long we should continue it for or if there is anything else we should try. Any suggestions?

    Thank you,
