Coughing in the flu.


How can I make coughing easier on my own?


The symptoms of a cold can be painful, as the cough keeps us awake at night, causing dizziness and loss of energy.


So, what is a cough?  - It's the body's reaction to the appearance of irritants in the lungs (such as dust or smoke). There are several types of coughing.

Coughing with mucus is called productive, without mucus it is considered unproductive or dry (it is successfully treated with dextromethorphan).

Breast coughing can vary and is caused by excess mucus in the respiratory tract, either in the nose or in the throat (it is well treated with guiphenesin).


Some cough medicine.


Menthol is one of the most popular remedies for reducing the difficulties associated with the onset of flu or colds, it is contained in a plant called mint. Menthol helps to get rid of coughing because it interacts with cold receptors in the throat and nose and helps to calm it.

For example, Vicks VapoRub contains 2.6% menthol.  And with two drops of VapoDrops in your mouth, you can also soothe your cough.


Don't think that these drugs will completely rid you of it, they just calm your throat for a while. 

While NyQuil Cough is a good remedy, it will help you sleep well.
