Product details

What is Benylin Children's 6+ Chesty Coughs

Benylin Children’s Chesty Coughs is a medicine that is used to help relieve chesty coughs in children. It contains guaifenesin (an expectorant) to help loosen mucus (phlegm) from the lungs and make it easier to cough up. The medicine is for use in children aged 6-12 years.

Treating Cough & Cold In Children 

It's normal for children to get 8 or more colds in a year. Gradually they build up immunity and get fewer colds. Most colds get better within a few days and you may not need to do more than keep your child comfortable until they get over it. Because colds are caused by viruses, not bacteria, antibiotics don't help. Here are simple steps to help your child who has a cough or cold.

  • If they are hot/feverish: Increase the amount of fluid your child normally drinks. Lower their temperature with paracetamol or ibuprofen medicine which has doses for children. (Paracetamol is not for children under 2 months. Ibuprofen is not for children under 3 months.)
  • For coughs: Although it is distressing to hear your child cough, in fact, coughing serves a purpose. It helps clear phlegm on the chest and mucus from the nose. Give the child plenty of warm clear fluids to drink.
  • To help with breathing: Plain saline nose drops, available from your pharmacy, can help babies with blocked noses who are having trouble feeding.
