2. Try some honey.
Honey is a natural cough suppressant that can serve as the perfect home remedy. Simply swallowing a spoonful of honey is enough to help cut down on nighttime coughing, especially in children. If you don’t like the taste of honey, just adding it to warm tea or water can also help with a sore throat. Some people even like to freeze honey to make their own honey lollipops to take care of an itchy throat.
