Carla S. - Can toddlers take lozenges for hoarse voices/sore throats etc.? Special size?

It is parainfluenza season, which is the name of a virus that causes hoarseness, laryngitis, and croup. We don't recommend any lozenges for children and toddlers because they can choke on them. They're a choking hazard. If your child is over the age of one, you can use a product containing honey and you can also try giving them tea with honey or putting them in a steamy bathroom in the evening, but no lozenges because again, we're worried about choking.
