Anyone have a good home remedy to help with the cough?

My sister had an upper respitory infection last week and she feels better but her coughing has not stopped and she’s at her wit’s end with this! Anyone know of a good home remedy?

vti answers:

I am in the same boat! Every time I get sick, I end up with a cough for a couple weeks. My doc says it’s the body getting rid of congestion built up while fighting the virus. Sounds like she’s doing what I do. I haven’t come up with anything that lasts a long time, but home remedies are usually safe enough to use as needed. I do know alot of people recommend cherry bark and slippery elm tea; these can probably be found at a health food store and directions should be followed like taking medicine. My favorite, though, is juice of half a lemon (fresh ones work better than bottled juice) in hot water, with honey added. Something about it does a better job at calming those tickle-spasm coughs that I can’t stop with a cough drop. Hot liquids help in general, but this hot lemon thing is best. At night, I add a shot of strong whiskey or bourbon to it. For some reason I get better cough relief from hard liquor than actual medicine! I’m guessing the alcohol relaxes spasms in my throat. Hope she’s feeling better soon!

Robert asks…

What is your “Home Remedy” for coughs and sore throat from the common cold?

I have been to the doc, I am on antibiotics – it’s all under control in that respect.. but I am interested to know what home remedies there are to help relieve the discomfort and annoying (mostly dry) cough.

vti answers:

Drink lots and lots of fluids, juices are best.
Take vitamin C and try to sweat, as much as possible.
If you do what I recommend, your cold will be gone in 7 days.
If you do absolutely nothing, your cold will be gone in a week.
Good Luck and Feel Better
