HOMEOPATHY is a science which deals with medicines that stimulate the body's self healing mechanism. It treats the man who has the disease and not just the disease unlike other sciences. Here are a few medicines that can help you get relief in acute Cold & Cough.

1. ARSENIC ALBUM: It is medicine for ice creams and cold drinks.

This is a medicine which will help you if you get cold and dry cough after having cold drinks or cold food like ice creams, cold drinks or any food item from refrigerator. 

Cold food is not only one which is kept in refrigerator but also food articles which are cold by nature like Curd

(Dahi), Cucumber, Banana, even regular water in winter as it becomes cold. 

2. RHUS TOX: It is the medicine for rainy season.

If you get wet in rains or if you get exposed to damp wet weather but not actually got wet and if you catch cold and cough, RHUS TOX is the medicine to be thought of.

3. ANTIMONIUM TART: It is a Homoeopathic expectorant.

It works best in acute onset of congestive cough where there is lot of mucus in the chest and it is not coming out. ANTIMONIUM TART in this case proves helpful.

4. ANTIMONIUM ARSENICUM: It is the medicine for congestion in chest with breathlessness.
