Doctor Answers (1) on Dry throat and cough
Suck cough drops or hard candies. They may ease a dry cough and soothe an irritated throat.
Moisturize the air. Use a vaporizer or take a hot, steamy shower.
Drink fluids. Liquid helps thin the mucus in your throat. Warm liquids, such as broth, tea or lemon juice and honey in warm water, can soothe your throat.
