Amen! When patients ask me "but what do I do about the cough?" I tell them that I do not take cold medicines and I don't give them to my children and I don't even own any!

It is hard in primary care to "do nothing" for a sick kid and I think many providers view cold medicine as less harmful than unneeded antibiotics. It is unfortunate.
