Wheezing coughs, phlegmy hacks or barking sounds, there are so many types of coughs that children can get from different illnesses at this time of year. So we've recruited Dr Margie Danchin from The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne to help us recognise the different types of coughs in children and how to treat them.

GUEST: Dr Margie Danchin, Paediatrician, The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne
