Persistant Cough
Hi, I have a cough which has been persisting for the last 4 weeks. I get sudden bouts after which it subsides and some intermediate minor irritable cough. Have this irritation in my throat and get flem sometimes when I get these bouts of cough. Irritations and bouts of cough are more in the mornings. I smoke about 5 cigarettes a week. Otherwise have a healthy lifestyle, I workout regularly and eat healthy and am at an almost optimum BMI. I have not taken any allopathic medicines so far to control it. Except a few gargles with Betadin on a few occasions but which did not help much. Please advice. Thanks in advance.

Hi..... Get plenty of sleep and rest your voice. Drink fluids. Drink plenty of water to keep the throat moist and prevent dehydration. Try comforting foods and beverage. Warm liquids — broth, caffeine-free tea or warm water with honey can soothe a sore throat. Gargle saltwater. A saltwater gargle of 1 teaspoon. Gargle the solution and then spit it out.... Consider lozenges. Lozenges can soothe a sore throat.... Avoid irritants. Keep your home free from cigarette smoke and cleaning products that can irritate the throat....
