    Thanks all for your input!

    I forgot to mention that I have already been giving DD Ivy Leaf Extract prior to seeing the GP which seems to have helped. GP suggested Manuka after I told her this too.

    Thank you for the above article. I know honey is safe after 12 months but I just wanted to know if anyone had heard anything good, bad or ugly specifically about Manuka.

    Much of a muchness.

    I read the article to not specifically mention Manuka for cough management. I am super duper tired though and may be skimming (shifty eyes).
    I'm sure you can get wound dressings impregnated with Manuka honey. I may be making that one up though. I do remember having heard about the use of Manuka honey directly in wounds through colleagues years ago, though it is 10 years since I have been on wards and know what is the current "go" in wound care.

    Can definitely be used for under 2's- I've tried it on DD under pharmacist's advice several times and she's 23 months. The first time she'd have been 14 months I think.
    Thanks for that. The pharmacist I spoke to said definitely not for under 2's. Irritating as he was so sick at the time.

    Yep - DS calls it magic honey! Whenever any of us look like we are getting a cough , sore throat or raspy voice I give a teaspoon of manuka honey ( I have 20+) and put it on toast in the morning - plus it's great for putting on burns or grazes

    We use manuka honey for medicinal purposes here. We don't use it as a spread, but find it useful if someone has a cold/sore throat/cough.

    Just read the back of the jar and says " not suitable for under 12 months" so 14 months no problem - it also lasts about 2 years so it seems expensive but will last you a while

    Same as this. I love the taste and it keeps for a while so I don't think it's too pricey

    I say go for it.

    Not related to coughs, but I once ate some dodgy spit roast port and my sister and i both had some rather odd gut issues as a result. She started having manuka honey and improved in a few days, mine hung on until I started having manuka honey too.
