So for people experiencing hard cough try these simple steps in treating your irritating coughs:
A dry cough is when you have an itchy scratch in your throat while a wet cough is one in which you are coughing up mucus. In my case, I have a wet cough.
- Get the right cough medication for your cough.
Use an antitussive cough mixture when you have a dry cough. It stops the natural reaction of the body to cough, which is what you want to do since the cough makes the irritation worse.
Buy an expectorant cough medicine when you have a wet cough. You are coughing up mucus and you don’t want to suppress it. If you don’t cough it up, it will stay in your lungs and cause more problems in the long run.
- Try a home remedy such as honey and lemon to cure your cough.
