I have used a hot hot steam shower - get shower running so burning hot and close bathroom door. Sit in bathroom with child or have older child sit in there on their own (not in the water). The steam from the water will help clear up their cough.

I have also used a warm wash cloth - soak a wash cloth in warm water, and have child hold it over their nose and mouth to take deep breaths, this does help clear up a cough.
