Cough is one of the most common symptoms of a large number of diseases: colds, sinus infections, bronchitis and other respiratory diseases. Some patients believe that cough, which makes them easy to live, it is almost impossible to get rid of. But American scientists are confident that the cough is not an incurable symptom.
Experts from the National laboratory of medicine, United States (U. S. National Library of Medicine) offer the following tools to deal with the cough. First of all, you must be sucking tablets that will ease the cough, especially dry, “tickly”. Then you should apply the spray at home to make the air in the room more humid.
The next step is the adoption of a hot shower. The steam will help to significantly alleviate a patient’s condition, and soften the cough. During periods of colds should drink plenty of fluids that will help to get rid of mucus that accumulates in the throat and worsening cough. In addition, if a person smokes, then he should abandon this habit, experts say.
One of the main recommendations is to consult your doctor. Not to start coughing, and not to turn the common cold into serious infectious disease, it is crucial to undergo a medical examination and not to take any medications before receiving a prescription. This rule especially applies to the treatment of young children.
