We've tried honey straight, honey in tea, mucinex, dimetapp, advil, a natural type of vicks i made rubbed on her throat, chest, back and feet, eucalyptus oil in the humidifier. I don't know what else to try.
I've heard that Desylm works well for the cough that happens with influenza A. I didn't try it ... but many friends told me they used it. I will say that you might need to take your 3 yr old in to the dr. if you suspect a secondary infection. We ended up with secondary infections on top of the flu ... mostly bronchitis.
