Menuka honey is absolutely the medicine for coughs. You can buy it from the supermarket now. Usually the more expensive the better. Google the health benefits and make sure it's ok for that age group.
Raw honey is unprocessed, straight from the hive, regular honey from the supermarket is processed.

Normal supermarket honey has been heat treated and usually is pasteurised but this does nothing to botulism spores which is why all honey is not recommended for infants under 12 months ( their digestive system is too immature to handle the spores) it is very rare but still a precaution just in case
Normal table honey is just sugar, all the antibacterial properties have bee destroyed but raw honey , or yes as pp said Manuka honey has amazing health benefits, I give DS a teaspoon of manuka honey ( or magic honey as he calls it!) every night before bed in winter or if any of us feel like we are getting a sore throat or sick
